Drove through a small tourist area just north of our house. Place is packed but 90% of the plates are MN, rest are IL.

No wonder you can't find a water front property for a decent price. All the ducks are driving up prices.

Could hardly even see the water with all the jet ski's, pontoons and ski boats. Looked like great fun..

So is MN really the place of 10000 lakes? Why does the whole state migrate into WI every weekend. Does MN suck that bad??

Well, I guess I’d say just drive to any lake in MN and you’ll find the exact same thing on any weekend in the summer.  Our two states border each other, and residents freely travel back and forth.  If you move further East into Wisconsin or west into Minnesota, I suspect that you’ll see fewer license plates from the other state.  There are a lot more people who want to hang out on lakes than there are lakes, so they tend to get kind of crowded in the summer, no matter where you are.  

Did you just move to Wisconsin from Pakistan or something, or why is this confusing to you?

As terrible as the business and tax environment in MN is, there’s still a lot of highly compensated employees.  Those people are buying up all the decent cabins in MN so yeah I imagine cabins in WI get looked at too.

I don’t go in the Wisconsin forum complaining about all the WI vehicles clogging the streets on the east side of the cities although I definitely could.

When I lived in NE ND.  The people there spread out in MN.  They went to Brainerd Area, Baudette, Bemidji, Park Rapids/Nevis, and DL/Perham area lakes.
But if you drove over to the Devils Lake area you would see fair amount of MN plates and boats in tow.
A relief pharmacist that worked for my uncle.  Her family was from Jamestown, and their family cabin was near Park Rapids.

@Chipper44mag The citiots are ruining northern Minnesota as well. Post 2020 riots their little metro utopia ain't such an awesome place to live.
