Opportunity, Affordability & Culture
Minneapolis has topped a number of best-of lists in recent years, recognized for its opportunity, affordability, and quality of life. Residents enjoy a combination of high earnings and low housing costs - there is a burgeoning start-up community and the city is home to 22 corporate headquarters. And with its impressively ranked higher education institutions, America’s third most literate city is also in the top ten for college graduation rates.
Landmark architecture and more theater seats than any city outside of New York have drawn a new wave of creative types and entrepreneurs to Minneapolis, and they’re cultivating modern tastes. The city is very diverse, with America’s largest population of Somalis, second largest Vietnamese population, and the largest Hmong population outside of Laos. The LGBTQ community is also vibrant - the city has been named one of “The Gayest Cities in America” by The Advocate.
Minneapolis is considered to have the best parks and recreation system in the US, with a network of 160 parks and 22 lakes within city limits. It is one of the top US cities for bicycling, for both commute and leisure, with 92 miles of on-street and 85 miles of off-street bikeways.
