It's the most ro-mantic time of the year. I hope you sang that like I intended.

So many people will be popping the big question this month. If you're thinking about it, here are some of the absolute best places to get down on one knee in Minnesota:

Bentleyville in Duluth - If your love is a huge fan of Christmas, you can't go wrong with one of the best light displays in the world, Bentleyville. What could possibly be more romantic than 5+ million lights spread across a 20-acre park on the shores of Lake Superior?

Split Rock Lighthouse - Speaking of Bentleyville, there are unlimited spots in the Duluth area that are beyond gorgeous all year round. From Lake Superior to Gooseberry Falls to the Split Rock Lighthouse, you can't go wrong. My grandma was a HUGE fan of lighthouses, so near a lighthouse would def be high on my list.

Stone Arch Bridge in Minneapolis - It makes for a gorgeous backdrop. There are a ton of photos on Instagram near the bridge, on the bridge, every angle is gorgeous. Just make sure you have someone there to play paparazzi for you to capture the incredible moment. ;)

"YOU BETCHA" mural - If you love this state and want to scream it loud and proud, what better place to propose? Located at 6518 Walker Street, St. Louis Park, MN. Murals are excellent backdrops for during and after the big moment and there are ton of great ones in the cities - the I Like You wall, the stars outside of First Ave, and the Uptown art, just to name a few.

US Bank Stadium, X-Cel Energy Center, or Target Field - Whether it's a concert during her favorite song or at a game for her go-to team, it's a good choice.

Minnehaha Falls - There's something so romantic about a waterfall. Have you been to  Minnehaha? It's a sweet spot. It's especially neat this time of year when things start to freeze.

Walker Art Center and Sculpture Garden - Nothing says love like a giant spoon and cherry. If art is your love language, why not? There are plenty of excellent spots here.
