"A little bit of something for everyone."

Minneapolis really does have a lot to offer. We've lived in Minneapolis for 17 years, we've lived in two different neighborhoods and we've experienced life here with and without kids. The neighborhoods are amazing, with a little research you can find a neighborhood that's right for you, home prices and amenities vary neighborhood by neighborhood but they all have something unique to offer. The streets are clean and lined with tree's and just about every neighborhood has a beautiful park with great equipment for the kids to play on as well as green space for picnics and relaxation. There are a ton of trails to bike, run or walk, The Grand Rounds Scenic Byway is one, it connects downtown Minneapolis to the Minnehaha Falls to the Chain of Lakes, it's 50 miles long and a great way to explore the city as well as exercise. Minneapolis has a vibrant theater scene, a great place to take in a performance is the Guthrie, the building is a performance in itself. We have great restaurants, my favorites are all the locally owned neighborhood restaurants, every neighborhood seems to have at least one. Beautiful museums, The Walker Art Center is my favorite, you have to check out Spoonbridge and Cherry, it's a Minneapolis icon. Minneapolis is home to the Minnesota Twins, Vikings, Timberwolves and The Wild. There are a variety of great schools to chose from, public and private, from elementary to the University of Minnesota. The people in Minnesota are educated, involved in their communities and genuinely nice.

"A great place for raising a family"

Our neighborhood is a great place for raising a family! Lots of families, excellent schools, and parks on nearly every corner make our neighborhood great for our family. Close to restaurants and supermarkets, it makes the busy life a little more easier. We've lived in this neighborhood for over 3 years and hope to move to a bigger place soon. We've looked at other neighborhoods around the twin cities and have decided to stay in this one as long as we can. Houses are somewhat cheaper in our neighborhood than in surrounding areas of Minneapolis. One thing I wish I could change is the traffic, which I think is similar throughout the general Twin Cities area. If we go beyond our neighborhood, we plan on everything taking at least 20 minutes.

"Nice but a little lacking"

This is a nice big city, it has a lot of good places to live,eat,and have fun and dont forget shopping. but it is lacking some. the public tranpertation is low and the citys economy is discusting, dont even think about green. plus there is no Apple Store.
