It appears that the setting of the Peanuts strip is ambiguous.

One early strip mentions Hennepin County and others contain a hint or two that the characters might live in Minnesota. Later strips contain references to the area of northern California where Schultz then lived, though that region doesn't get nearly as much snow (it barely gets any at all) as depicted in the strip. Not surprisingly for a comic strip that ran for over four decades, there are a lot of continuity issues.

The 1970's movie Airport. The terminal in the movie is the Minneapolis airport. Now I'm not sure if it was set in Minneapolis, I think it was Chicago but I'll have to go back to check.

This was the beginning of the mega disaster movie trend. Towering Inferno, Posidian Adventure. There were a bunch with mega casts.
Yes, I was referring to setting, not filming location (as with Little House on the Prairie or Juno, both set in Minnesota but filmed elsewhere).

"On The Banks of Plum Creek" by Laura Ingalls Wilder and also the next book in the series, "By The Shores of Silver Lake" - part of it takes place in MN.

This is a list of the book set in each state with the highest user rating on Goodreads. For Minnesota, it is William Kent Krueger's Ordinary Grace.

I would have expected Main Street by Sinclair Lewis or On The Banks of Plum Creek by Laura Ingalls Wilder, or maybe something by Garrison Keillor or Tim O'Brien, to top the list.
