If you're looking for a peaceful, pristine, reflective lake, the state of Minnesota is full of them. But one takes the crown as one of the clearest and cleanest in the U.S.

As it turns out, this lake receives much of its water from underground springs, giving it some of the clearest water in the entire country.

Where Is The Clearest Lake In All Of Minnesota?

There may be over ten thousand lakes in Minnesota, but only one can be called the "clearest" in the entire state. According to RV Lifestyle, the clearest in Minnesota is Deer Lake, located north of Grand Rapids.

Here's what RV Lifestyle had to say about Deer Lake:

Turns out there are loads of “Deer Lakes” in the U.S., but this one is twelve miles north of Grand Rapids, Minnesota.

Deer Lake receives much of its water from rainfall and both surface and underground springs, making the waters very clear.

Inside Minnesota's Largest Candy Store

I had been to Minnesota's Largest Candy Store once before, but they did some pretty cool things since the last time I was there. They added a bunch of superheroes, Star Wars stuff, and a candy band.

According to their Facebook page, Jim's Apple Farm is actually how the now huge candy store got its start. It is located in Jordan, MN and you can't miss it. It is a huge yellow building.

Even though candy is mentioned in the name, they have a little bit of everything. They have fresh baked pies and cookies and fudge. We walked in and it smelled amazing!

They also have the largest selection of sodas! Then there is chocolate and taffy and gummies and chips and puzzles and games. So much stuff!

They even have a Zoltar machine like in the movie, Big. I had to check that out. He told me the only helping hand is at the end of my arm. Gee, thanks Zoltar.

There were even crickets and worms! Not gummy worms, but actual worms.
They also have candy from all over the world!

The store is seasonal, however. November is their last month of operation for the season.
