Welcome to Minneapolis!
Brought to you by: www.LifeInMPLS.com
Although I am a resident of St. Paul (just on the other side of the Mississippi River), I can wholeheartedly say that I enjoy all of the time I spend in the great city of Minneapolis – they are Twin Cities after all!
Built around Saint Anthony Falls (the only major natural waterfall on the Mississippi River), Minneapolis was once a large timber hub and the flour mill capital of the world. Nowadays, Minneapolis remains the most populous city in Minnesota and boasts one of the best park systems in the country. The city is home to several sports teams – Minnesota Vikings (NFL), Minnesota Twins (MLB), Minnesota Timberwolves (NBA) and Minnesota Lynx (WNBA), as well as an amazing restaurant scene which I have spent many nights enjoying!
Additionally, Minneapolis features a strong performing arts scene and is second only to New York City when it comes to live theater per capita. Prince, Bob Dylan, Atmosphere, Brother Ali, Dessa, Lizzo – the list of artists who have called Minneapolis home at one time or another goes on and on!
Divided into eleven communities, each of which are comprised of several neighborhoods, there is something for everyone in Minneapolis! More information about a few predominant Minneapolis communities can be found below.

Made famous in the Prince song “Uptown”, this trendy community is for the young and the young at heart. Block after block of retail stores and restaurants lead to the community’s most prominent feature – beautiful Lake Bde Maka Ska and The Chain of Lakes, a key component of the Grand Rounds National Scenic Byway, a 51-mile loop composed of parkways, trails, and the Mississippi River Boulevard.
Longfellow is a beautiful community within southeast Minneapolis, located along the Mississippi River Gorge. Rich in nature and recreation, this community is home to the fabled Minnehaha Falls. With over 21,000 residents and 400 unique businesses, Longfellow is the largest neighborhood in Minneapolis.
The Southwest community is one of the most sought after spots in Minneapolis. It is conveniently located not only to Downtown Minneapolis, but also to the popular 50th and France commercial district (with over 175 retail shops and offices!), The Chain of Lakes, and many wonderful parks. Real estate in this community includes Tudor, prairie-style, Victorian-era, and ramblers.
