Taking its name from the Dakota word for water and the Greek word for city, Minneapolis, the City of Lakes (22 of them to be exact), truly combines the best of city excitement with stunning natural beauty. With more than 380,000 residents, Minneapolis is the larger of the Twin Cities and is also home to over 170 parks. In fact, every resident lives within six blocks of one! The city is home to the 50-mile Grand Rounds National Scenic Byway (the nation’s premier urban scenic byway), award-winning restaurants and arts venues, and gleaming modern architecture that houses Fortune 500 companies and civic institutions.

You’ll find nightlife options that span the spectrum from glimmering dance clubs to neighborhood dive bars, from Broadway performances to the Fringe Festival, and from bowling alleys to major league sports. Dining in Minneapolis is just as diverse. Whether you want a casual meal in a neighborhood bistro or a fancy dinner at a nationally-acclaimed restaurant, you’ll find it in the City of Lakes.

Minneapolis is home to dozens of neighborhood retail areas and commercial corridors—where you can find unique shops, local restaurants, and all kinds of services. You can also find some of your favorite large retailers right in the city too! See a list of Minneapolis retail areas.

“My husband and I moved to Minneapolis from San Diego. Most people think we got it backwards, but we wouldn't live anywhere else. Minneapolis + St. Paul have great museums, theater, city living, and the great outdoors. Our son's first word was 'duck' thanks to our proximity to Minnehaha Creek.”
