What it’s Like to Live in Minneapolis, Minnesota:
Minneapolis is a major city in Minnesota consisting of mostly young professionals. This city offers an urban feel and is one of the busier cities in the state. Minneapolis is considered a city of fun and growth – with its strong job market, delicious and various food options, affordable cost of living, and fantastic nature with dozens of parks and lakes, it proves itself as a utopia for people who are looking to bring excitement into their lives. There is always something fun to do, especially for families and young adults.
In the summertime, Minnesotan’s calendars are packed with festivals, night markets, the Minnesota State Fair, and evenings of endless art and music. There is even an excess of activities to do during the winter months. Instead of staying inside and bundling up, Minnesotans take advantage of snowy days with outdoor ice sculptures, skiing, snowmobiling, pond hockey, and ice fishing. There is also easy access to the renowned Mall of America, residing in Bloomington, Minnesota, which is only a 15-minute drive from downtown Minneapolis.
Sports and college opportunities are a significant pride of Minnesota. Minnesota is home to high-performing teams such as The NBA Timberwolves, The Minnesota Lynx, The NFL Vikings, The MLB Twins, the NHL Wild, and the University of Minnesota Golden Gophers. Locals are usually very passionate about sports and bleed the official colors of their favorite team. If you are a fan of sports or are just looking for something exciting to witness, a rival game in one of these stadiums is guaranteed to get your adrenaline pumping. If you are looking to live in a beautiful city with plenty of access to nature, great food, and jam-packed with fun things to do, Minneapolis is your place.
