Minneapolis combines the Dakota word for
water (“mine”) with the Greek
word for city ("polis") — a fitting name
for a city with so many of
Minnesota's 12,034 lakes. As the state’s
largest city, Minneapolis
combines the buzz of urban life with the
neighborliness of smaller
towns. Residents enjoy cultural and
recreational opportunities in
beautiful natural surroundings.
Both Minneapolis and nearby St Paul
attract young people from the rural
areas stretching hundreds of miles in
all directions, making the Twin
Cities the buckle of the northern farm
belt. As with much of the
Midwest, you will feel very welcome.
