Minnesota is the land of 10,000 lakes. It does not have nearly as many waterfalls, but there are some nice ones to be found in the state. A large number of these waterfalls can be found along Minnesota's North Shore. This 150 mile stretch of Lake Superior's shoreline features several state parks and over a dozen easily visited waterfalls.

The northern stretch of Minnesota is a canoeist's paradise. Remote waterfalls can be found in Voyageurs National Park and the Boundary Waters Canoe area. I do not know much about any of these waterfalls. When you are in a canoe waterfalls are more notable for the hazard they pose than for their scenic beauty. Curtain Falls is apparently one of the most impressive, being 30 feet high and 100 feet wide. Rebecca Falls is nearby across the Canadian Border and it too is supposed to be exceptionally scenic.

A number of falls are scattered across southern Minnesota. Several of these are within an hours drive of Minneapolis. Minnehaha Falls is within the cities boundaries.

South Dakota's Big Falls of the Sioux River is just across the Minnesota border. Several of Wisconsin's waterfalls are also close to the Minnesota border.
