The arts are important in this city! There are several theaters - professional and community. The St Paul Chamber Orchestra is one of the top rated orchestra in the US. In the heart of downtown, you will find the Ordway Theater offer well know musicals right next door to the Xcel Energy Arena, where the MN Wild play. Just up the hill lies the St Paul's Catholic Cathedral. It's stunning with high ceilings and nooks and crannies to explore. Of course St Paul is the capitol of MN, so activism is present! Each city block has character.

I've lived in Saint Paul for 27 years! There is nowhere else I'd rather live and raise my family. I've been a Saint Paul Public Schools employee as well and we have some of the most amazing, caring teachers in the metro area. The summer farmer's markets and bike friendly streets encourage a healthy lifestyle. The local art scene is amazing, with great art galleries, museums, and theatres like the Science Museum of Minnesota and the Ordway Performing Arts Center. The Excel Energy Center is always host to great concerts and the restaurants offer great, unique food options from many ethnic groups. The diversity of the city makes for a liberal mindset that we love here in Minnesota.
It's been my hometown ever since I was born. It has everything a person could ask for. It has an awesome college, fun entertainment places, both theatres and public activities, and the downtown area is very beautiful and fun to hang out in. And if you're a person who likes to shop, luckily there is the Mall of America about 20 minutes away from the city!
