Why It's Worth It

More “almost Canada” than Midwest, Minneapolis has an artist’s independent spirit crossed with the no-nonsense, outdoorsy determination that belies its Nordic roots. The towering, shiny downtown core along the Mississippi River gives way to urban lakes and neighborhoods, each with its own defining personality. Abundant bike trails, a competitive restaurant scene, popular farmers markets, theaters in a range of styles and seating capacities—culture and nature marry so well that moving between them isn’t just easy, but practically inevitable. —Berit Thorkelson
