Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota, USA
About Minneapolis/St. Paul
The Twin Cities, a major metropolitan area in southeastern Minnesota, is comprised of Minneapolis and St. Paul, but these "twins" are far from identical. To the west, you can catch a play at the Guthrie, a Vikings game at U.S Bank Stadium or take in the majestic views of the Stone Arch Bridge in Minneapolis. On the east side, St. Paul, Minnesota’s capital, is the home to the Como Zoo, the Cathedral of St. Paul and the new Minnesota United soccer stadium.
Both cities bustle with museums, arts districts, farmers’ markets and acclaimed restaurants. As a cultural hub in the Northern Midwest, the Twin Cities are home to immigrants from a multitude of countries and have the highest refugee population per capita in the United States. From the Phillips Neighborhood in Minneapolis where more than 100 languages are spoken to the Frogtown Neighborhood in St. Paul that’s filled with Cambodian, Hmong, and Vietnamese markets and restaurants, diversity thrives in the Minnesota metro.
