Minneapolis is a freaking awesome city in the Midwest, and is better than Chicago with the whole theater scene and cultural thing. The skyline's gorgeous, and the culture is very mixed, with lots of blacks, hispanics, asians, and somalians inhabiting various neighborhoods like riverside, and the west side, etc, even though MN has a rep for being super white. Not true anymore. There is gang activity in the wrong parts of town, like Dinkytown and sometimes in North Mpls., but it's a relatively clean, awesome city, with great culture, sports, people... Minneapolis rocks. And it's way better than boring old Saint Paul.
Minneapolis is the coolest city on earth, cuz it's got all the perks of a huge city without the disadvantages.
