After 21 years in northern Minnesota, I reluctantly relocated to the Twin Cities in 2009. Yes, there were better employment opportunities, but there was also rush hour traffic, hotter summers, and I couldn’t figure out how to get anywhere. Since then, my sense of direction has improved, although I still don’t like extremely hot weather or rush hour. But I have fallen in love with everything that the Twin Cities metro has to offer (especially the ice cream).
- My favorite things about downtown Minneapolis
- Favorite Twin Cities Coffee and Tea Shops
- The Midtown Global Market–my favorite place to eat and shop in the Twin Cities. And since it’s indoors, you can visit all year long.
