Minnesota offers world-class entertainment and access to some of the finest lakes and recreation areas. Minneapolis offers 22 lakes in the city limits alone and communities throughout the Twin Cities metropolitan area combine lush green environments with cosmopolitan sophistication.
Visitors and residents enjoy a variety of outdoor activities, from fishing and boating on our more than 10,000 lakes, to walking or biking on the many trails throughout the state. Indoors, people flock to the Mall of America—the largest enclosed entertainment and retail complex in the country. The Twin Cities also boasts the largest theater district outside of New York City.
Our surrounding metro and semi-rural locations offer the peace and serenity of small-town living with close proximity to the metropolitan area for dining, cultural and sporting activities.
