I was born and raised in St. "Small." I moved to California for 2 years and rushed back as soon as I could. The people are great, the seasons are all amazing and the food is the best in the mid-west by far (including Chicago)! We have the most talented chefs in the country. There are tons of things to do year-round. A perfect mix of urban and rural. Night-life is on-point as well. A great place to raise a family. The people are progressive and "MN Nice" is a real thing. Major market for all professional sports teams. Overall, an amazing place to live!

I've lived in St. Paul for over 15 years now. St. Paul is a very resourceful city! So many memories here tied from block to block and this city has given me everything I've needed to succeed. Education, shelter, friends, lessons, and most of all opportunity! Just don't tell Mom! So many good places to eat, hangout, hit the music scene, and very family oriented! Come and visit!
What I love about Saint Paul is all the great restaurants you can find! There are Three main areas I'd go to for food Hmong Village which is on Phalen Bvld. Then Arcade St, and Payne Ave there are a lot of Asian restaurants and Hispanic restaurants on these streets. Finally University Ave there are tons of restaurants here my favorite would probably be Little Schezuan which is a Chinese Hot Pot Cafe. What I most like about Saint Paul is the Pho, you can Find Pho on every one of these streets and the best thing about it is that every restaurant makes it a little different! Five Stars!
