Minneapolis St Paul area Real Estate Analysis

Located in the heart of the Midwest, the twin cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul have put themselves on the map for a variety of reasons.  For love of the state’s beauty, rivers and over 10,000 lakes, the 7+ miles of skyway that connect the downtown buildings and the abundance of activities and interesting sites many have moved here from outside the metro area and outside the state to enjoy local ammenities.

We have the most theater seats in the country per capita after New York, including the fabulous new Guthrie Theater in downtown Minneapolis and the Ordway Theater in downtown Saint Paul, and we also offer the stunning new “glass” Minneapolis Public Library, or the updated Walker Art Center.  The Twin Cities is a true center for the Arts and Culture, including three Broadway Venues in beautifully restored original vaudeville theaters.  Minnesota boasts too many museums to mention but the Minneapolis Institute of Art and the Science Museum of Minnesota are two of the best venues in town offering new nationally reknowned exhibits regularly.

With Music to suit every taste we have the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra in the Ordway theater and the world renowned Minnesota Orchestra housed at Orchestra Hall in Minneapolis to top the chart of local venues.  Jazz clubs, arena concerts, First Avenue and many other options in the Warehouse district, downtown and uptown abound with a wide variety of music, dance clubs restaurants and bars to suit every taste.  Local neighborhoods offer fine cuisine as well with a local flair throughout the metro area.

If sports is your passion we have it all, over 365 golf courses in the metro area, the Minnesota Timberwolves, Minnesota Vikings, Minnesota Twins and Minnesota Wild for national sports teams will keep sports fans running all year round.

Shopping is superior to any other state in the union with the Mall of America in Bloomington, not to mention the other enclosed malls, enclosed amusement park, indoor aquarium and water parks.

Minneapolis and Saint Paul and the twin cities offer a high quality of life, wonderful parks and recreation areas and resort housing at some of the 10,000 lakes for which we are famous.
