I think a lot depends on where you fly from. Duluth is the closest viable airport but when flying from California all the Duluth flights stop first at MSP. Not much is gained for the extra airfare and reduced availability vs just driving from MSP.

Milwaukee is a connector (vs non-stop to MSP) and no cheaper. If long drives don't bother you than Chicago is only about an hour further than Milwaukee (7h vs 6h) and has far more and generally cheaper flights.

There are also a few minor airports around. Eu Clair is about an hour closer than MSP. Flight availability is thin though.
