Minneapolis is a growing community with a lot of diversity. Everybody minds themselves and many are "Minnesota nice." Traffic is only heavy on the freeways during rush hour because of out of town commuters, otherwise the roads are very efficient. Bike lanes are established to keep bikers, pedestrians, and drivers safe from collision. This city is really big in the arts which welcome all ages and plenty of brewery's and night life events for strictly adults to enjoy too. Minneapolis is a quaint metropolis that has far less crime than other large cities around the country. One thing to dislike are the roads during snow storms, they are impossible to maneuver through!

Minneapolis is a great place to grow up. There are great bike trails and tons of lakes to enjoy, and no matter the season there is always something fun to do! During the summer you can enjoy all the green space the city has and during the colder moths there is no shortage of indoor activities for people who don't like ice skating or snow shoeing. The public schools in the city are great, with wonderful teachers who care about having a positive impact on their student's lives it's easy to see why the population is growing every year. Not to mention the Mall of America, which has an indoor amusement park, it's own aquarium and literally every store you can think of!
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.
