Minneapolis, located on the Mississippi River in southeastern Minnesota, is the largest city in the state, with a population of around 383,000 and a metro of 3.3 million. It and adjacent St. Paul were dubbed "the Twin Cities" by Mark Twain. St. Anthony Falls, the only waterfall on the Mississippi River, supplied electricity for dozens of Minneapolis flour and lumber mills built in the late 19th century. Within a short time, the city was the flour milling capital of the world; industry giants Pillsbury and General Mills are still based there. Today, Minneapolis is a modern city with more skyscrapers than mills, and additional Fortune 500 companies Target, Best Buy, Northwest Airlines, Xcel Energy and Medtronic based in the area. A thriving economy coupled with a safe, affordable environment make Minneapolis a great place to live, ranking it high on many publications' list of top cities.
After decades of being thought of across America as a cold, dull area, Minneapolis is now recognized as one of the country's hippest cities. With a nightlife that doesn't take a back seat to any of America's larger cities, Minneapolis ranked #14 on Forbes Magazine's List of the Best Cities For Singles. The Warehouse District and First Avenue Area, made famous by Prince (a Minneapolis native) in Purple Rain, are loaded with good restaurants, trendy bars and clubs offering great music.
