Looking a place where everyone is welcomed? Then, jot down Minneapolis on your list 'cause you don't want to miss all the fun up here! However, if you really hate winter and all the misfortunes that come with it then drop by the other seasons. OR bundle up before you get here in the winter. Diversity is the core of this city. During the summertime, you will get to see what makes this city beautiful. You will get to know everyone and almost everything that is great about Minneapolis. I personally like camping, canoeing, and finishing down the Missippi River during the summer. Come by and discover the wonders of Minneapolis.

I love Minneapolis! I have lived here for 12 years. There are many places to visit such as, The Minneapolis Institute of Art, The Walker Art and Sculpture Garden, The Guthrie Theater, and Minnehaha Falls. There are many restaurants to go to in downtown or uptown. The night life is full of bars and clubs in downtown and Northeast. Minneapolis also a very diverse city. The public schools are open to all students who come from different backgrounds either Black, Hmong, Hispanic, Somalian or White and who's families have different income low or middle/high.
I have lived in Minneapolis for ten years, and despite the occasional urge to venture away, I can't seem to leave this special city. Minneapolis possesses balance in the most crucial areas. We have wonderful parks and green spaces in the middle of a buzzing metropolitan area. We experience the depth of all four seasons, enjoying ice skating and cozy evenings during our brisk winters and playtime on the beach during our steamy summers. We cultivate a thriving arts community and participate in demonstrations and political acts that gain national recognition. The people of Minneapolis harbor community and act on behalf of one another to establish systems that benefit us all. I am proud to call it home!
