Minneapolis

The first blog entry!

        Welcome to the first blog entry on our website!  Today I will be breaking down for you one of my favorite cities within the Minnesota.  This wonderful city is Minneapolis, otherwise known as the largest and most prevalent city within our wonderful state of Minnesota.  Minneapolis, alongside Saint Paul, makes up the Twin Cities which is the sixteenth largest metropolitan area within the United States.  The city is currently home to over 400,000 residents with more living nearby in the many suburbs of Minneapolis.  

        There are many wonderful highlights and attractions within Minneapolis that are spread all throughout the city!  Minneapolis is truly a city for everyone, regardless of what your background or interests pertain to.  If you are into theater and the performing arts, Minneapolis is home to the iconic Guthrie theater which opened in 1963.  This theater is nationally renown, and routinely hosts excellent plays and musicals that can create wonderful memories.  Minneapolis is also home to a great deal of incredible and appealing sports teams, some of which include the Minnesota Timberwolves, The Minnesota Vikings, and the Minnesota Twins.  Each of these sports teams have had their own individual moments in which they shined right in the wonderful city of Minneapolis itself!

        The city of Minneapolis is also a wonderful city in regards to ease of access to parks and schools.  There is a wide and diverse array of schools within the city of Minneapolis that each can cater to different children's needs.  In the case of parks, Minneapolis has some of the most iconic, and most breathtaking in the state.  No matter where you live in the city, rest assured, there is always a park somewhere nearby for your convenience and enjoyment.  One of the most well known parks in Minneapolis is Minnehaha park which is home to the incredibly popular Minnehaha falls.  Minneapolis is one of the top cities within not only Minnesota, but the nation as well.  Regardless of what type of person you are, the city can offer you something unique, and of your individual taste!
