The Tiny Minnesota Town That Is Inside Canada

Minnesota town in canada

CBS Sunday Morning reporter Lee Cowan traveled to Northwest Angle, a little Minnesota town that lies above the northern 49th parallel. While this town seems like it should be a portion of Canada, it is still a part of the United States. While life can be awkward as a passport is needed to enter or exit the town, those who live there seem to be quite happy with their small and peaceful fishing town.

There is a place in Minnesota that has the feel of small town America, but if you want to get to the Northwest Angle, travelers have to leave the U.S. and go through Canada to get there. Lee Cowan explains a geographical quirk along the northern border.
