Northernmost Point in the Contiguous U.S.

Northernmost Point in the Contiguous U.S.

The northernmost point in the contiguous U.S. is found in Angle Inlet, Minnesota, which is itself a geographic anomaly. Now a monument commemorating marks the spot. Newly erected in the last few months (according to a local we talked to), it is very similar to the monument for the southernmost point found in Key West, Florida. Finally a cheesy picture spot after all the adventure of getting there!

Angle Inlet's "anomaly" is that you have to drive through several miles of Canada to get to this spot in Minnesota. Bring your passport!
