With a population of 425,403 people and 116 constituent neighborhoods, Minneapolis is the largest community in Minnesota. Minneapolis has an unusually large stock of pre-World War II architecture, making it one of the older and more historic cities. Minneapolis is also a city of artists and has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Minneapolis’s character. Minneapolis and St. Paul not only have big-city amenities like museums and sports stadiums, but also have an approachable Midwestern feel. Separated by the Mississippi River, the Twin Cities are considered one metropolitan area, but in fact include two unique cities, featuring downtown cosmopolitan cores surrounded by distinctive neighborhoods and suburban communities. St. Paul, Minnesota's capital, offers residents a historic atmosphere with parks, government offices and museums. The Summit Hill neighborhood is filled with grand historic homes like the James J. Hill mansion, while Grand Avenue showcases the city lifestyle with bungalow-style homes, locally owned eateries and boutique shopping. About 12 miles west, Minneapolis – once known as The Flour Milling Capital of the World – features a mix of historic architecture and contemporary skyscrapers, as well as a bevy of restaurants, bars and entertainment venues. The 17-block area known as Eat Street offers more than 50 dining options. The geographic location and climate in The Land of 10,000 Lakes play an important role in the culture of the area, with residents taking advantage of the changing seasons. Locals embrace the harsh winters and partake in hockey, ice fishing and cross-country skiing. During the spring, summer and fall, Minneapolis and St. Paul come alive with outdoor music festivals, baseball games at Target Field and recreational opportunities on the area's lakes.
