Living in St. Paul, Minnesota:
The “Land of Sky-Blue Water” is the literal translation of the Dakota Indian word, “Minnesota.” Known as the “Land of 10,000 Lakes,” we actually have 15,291 lakes. Minnesota is the 12th largest state in size, has a population of 5 million people, and residents enjoy the four seasons of the year. The Twin Cities and surrounding suburbs are home to 3 million people.
From the vast expanse of Lake Superior in the north to the deep river valleys of the south, to the agriculturally rich Red River Valley to the spirited Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, we enjoy a quality of life unmatched in other parts of the country.
Minneapolis and St. Paul have evolved into a major metropolitan center. Today, both cities and their surrounding communities host a unique situation: employment in the suburbs constitutes over 63 percent of all metropolitan jobs and one can easily live near one’s work.
Lake Superior, the largest inland fresh water lake, has 150 miles of breath-taking Minnesota shoreline stretching from Duluth to the Canadian border. The road is flanked by the rocky North Shore cliffs on one side and the beautiful waters of the lake on the other.
Minneapolis has over 6,000 acres of parkland and St. Paul has over 3,500 acres where residents can walk, run, skate, and cycle. Many of the parks border lakes and rivers.
In addition to the 68 state parks, Minnesotans enjoy attractions such as Valleyfair Amusement Park, Cantebury Downs, Knott’s Camp Snoopy, and a number of Casinos within commuting distance. Our downtown skyways allow shoppers to go from store to store without the need to venture outside. Each city has more than five miles of skyways, and these have been studied by city planners from around the world.
