TWIN CITIES: Booming with vibrant culture, family activities, tight-knit neighborhoods, and healthy industry with Fortune 500 companies, local businesses, and more.

NEIGHBORHOODS: Filled with recreational centers, parks, libraries, and family-friendly arts and culture. Children’s programs are routinely offered at area museums, neighborhood businesses, and the public schools. Parents can choose from hundreds of educational institutions with diverse and challenging curriculums.

RECREATION: More than 300 parks, over a dozen swimming beaches, and hundreds of miles of trails without ever leaving the city. MSP also boasts more than 80 recreational centers, countless public swimming pools, water parks, ice rinks, golf courses, ski areas, and playgrounds.

AFFORDABILITY: Despite nationally-acclaimed amenities, the cities are still quite affordable. In 2007, Forbes singled out the Twin Cities as “the most affordable place to live well” in America – based on housing, high quality of life, and access to premier arts, leisure and entertainment.

MINNEAPOLIS AREA: The “City of Lakes” (22 of them), is divided into 11 communities; each of which are home to anywhere from 4 to 13 neighborhoods with a grand total of 81 “official” neighborhoods. The best of city excitement paired with stunning natural beauty. With more than 380,000 residents, Minneapolis is the larger of the Twin Cities and is home to the 50-mile Grand Rounds National Scenic Byway

SAINT PAUL AREA: Nicknamed the City of Neighborhoods and the City of Seven Hills. Home to a plethora of businesses, entertainment venues, over 287,000 residents, and Summit Avenue—the longest remaining stretch of residential Victorian architecture in the nation. Saint Paul ranks third in the nation for its number of 4+ year higher education institutions per capita; is home to many large financial and health care-sector employers; and boasts a thriving immigrant population that brings vitality and culinary splendors to city neighborhoods.

ENTERTAINMENT/NIGHTLIFE: The nightlife concentrates on the authentic neighborhood pub/bar scene. Dozens of popular establishments bring in visitors from across the cities to enjoy great local brews, mouth-watering local and ethnic foods (including a burgeoning food truck/mobile restaurant scene!), and exciting live music. The city’s multiple theaters and Ordway Center for the Performing arts provide the symphony, opera, dance, music, and theatrical performances for residents and visitors.
