City nicknames, so roll off the tongue easily and make a ton of sense, others not so much. Here in Minnesota, there are a few different cities and towns that have great nicknames that really fit the town, the prime example in Southeast Minnesota is Preston. The Trout Capital of Minnesota.

Home to the National Trout Center, a huge Trout Statue, and of course Trout Days, the city of Preston has proven to be the Trout Capital of Minnesota. Not to mention the Root River flows right through town.

So buckle up, here are five of the best city nicknames right in Minnesota. (No, Preston is not on our list, only because we already delved into it and it would be number one on my list anyway so I figured we would just dive right into the others).
