Minnesota Nice is real, according to visitors to the Super Bowl who are leaving the Twin Cities with nothing but kind things to say about their hosts.

Ok, so the weather dominated much of the negative reactions to the city, but by and large fans, media personalities and celebrities were bowled over by Minnesota during the last 10 days.

Minnesota is a proud state, with its people prone to being defensive whenever out-of-towners criticize it, but who tend to love it when they love us.

Here's what ESPN's NFL insider Adam Schefter had to say.

And Sports Illustrated's Peter King.

Donnie Wahlberg was in town with his wife Jenny McCarthy, paying a stop at the soon-to-open Wahlberger's at the Mall of America.

Here are some of the other notable tributes paid to Minnesota as the great exodus got underway.

So the verdict's in, people love Minnesotans. Either that or they're not used to passive aggression.
