The existence of heaven is a matter of debate best left to theologians. But this much we know: Paradise lies right outside your door, in a place that some call God’s Country and others simply Minnesota (and, sometimes, western Wisconsin). Endowed by the Almighty or the glaciers (you pick) with a jackpot’s worth of lakes, ponds, fishing holes, and Sweet-Jesus-that’s-purty scenery, this region is a sort of Promised Land—but with state parks, scenic byways, island resorts, waffle shops, spas, and golf courses. Kingdom come, sure. But don’t hurry. We’ve got plenty to do here before then.
