Minneapolis, Minnesota: Mary Tyler Moore Statue

No trip to the Twin Cities is complete without a visit with Mary Richards.

That was the character name of Mary Tyler Moore in her classic television series. It was set in Minneapolis, and the opening credits were finished with a shot of Mary throwing her hat in the air at a street corner. The next time you see it, look for the woman sneering in the background when the freeze frame starts.

TV Land put up a statue of Fonzie in Milwaukee, and then did this one. It's right outside of Macy's in downtown Minneapolis. The show will last forever in re-runs, and viewers will always come here to see the person who turned the world on with her smile.
