It seems that one of northern Minnesota's best-kept secrets isn't.  That slice of Heaven known as the Boundary Waters Canoe Area received high compliments from former Seinfeld alum Julia Louis-Dreyfus. 

In a question and answer session for an upcoming film, the Wall Street Journal posed the following question to Luis-Dreyfus:  "What's the most underrated destination in America"? Her response:  "The Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in Minnesota.  I went canoeing and I loved it.  It was just unfathomably beautiful".

The answer comes on the heels of another Minnesota connection for Louis-Dreyus; a year ago, her character in the HBO show "Veep" had her legs shaved by a staffer - a move that has been rumored to be connected to Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar.  That rumor has never been substantiated; at the same time, it's probably wise not to read too much into any longer-term Minnesota connection for Julia Louis-Dreyfus.
