Whether you are exploring Minnesota for the first time or you are already familiar with the Land of 10,000 Lakes, you will never grow tired of the breadth of recreation, cultural activities, educational options and community resources that Minnesota has to offer. Minnesotans enjoy a nice balance of metropolitan living with all its amenities and small-town “cabin-life,” with the peace and serenity of our abundant parks and lakes.
Minneapolis and St. Paul are commonly called the Twin Cities, each with their own historical significance and charm. The Twin Cities maintain strong communities with a diverse economy, coupled with quality health care, recreational activities and some of the best schools in the nation. The Twin Cities has become a destination for thousands of new residents every year. Minneapolis was recently ranked as the sixth most educated city, based on the percent of population with a college degree (43.2 percent). With an average commute time of twenty-one minutes, the Twin Cities remain an easily accessible destination in which to live and work.
“Finding a place diverse enough to satisfy the dream is why some 2.8 million residents call Minneapolis/St. Paul home. Here you’ll find nationally celebrated schools, leading medical facilities, top-notch health care, high-value housing and greenery, parks and waterways that are as prevalent in the outlying suburbs as they are in either downtown.”~Twin Cities Living magazine
