We Love Minnesota: Five Great Cities To Move To
We have written posts raving about our favorite vacation spots, fun family activities, festivals, sporting events and everything that the Twin Cities has to offer. Now it’s time to give a shout out to some of our favorite cities to live. We move people to every part of Minnesota so we get to experience them first hand.
Rochester is proud home of the world-renowned Mayo Clinic. An exciting renovation project is currently in the works on the Mayo Civic Center. Opening in 2017, the expanded center will feature a 40,000 square foot ballroom and 14 additional meeting rooms. When complete, the center will be a total 200,000 square feet with 23 meeting rooms. A lively and bustling city.
This beautiful city sits on the shore of the largest freshwater lake in the world, Lake Superior. It shares that lakeshore with neighboring Wisconsin. Duluth is Outside Magazine’s “Best Town Ever” with 6,834 acres of city parkland, 178 miles of wooded trails, 16 designated trout streams, you have endless options for year-round activities in Duluth.
St. Cloud, MN
St. Cloud is the largest population center in Minnesota’s central region. Just 65 miles northwest of the Twin Cities, the city is home to the state’s third largest public university, St. Cloud State University. The Mississippi River runs right through the center of the city. Just beyond the city limits the Beaver Islands form a maze for a two-mile stretch of the river. The approximately 30 undeveloped islands are a popular destination for kayak and canoe enthusiasts and are part of a state-designated 12-mile stretch of wild and scenic river.
Fargo–Moorhead is a common name given to the metropolitan area comprising Fargo, North Dakota, Moorhead, Minnesota, and the surrounding communities. Located on the banks of the Red River of the North, Fargo–Moorhead has it own unique style providing the cultural, retail, healthcare, educational, and industrial center of the region.
Mankato, just 75 miles south of Minneapolis, is considered a premier vacation destination. Thanks to the Sclare/Far Fissure, water seeping through the earth heats to well over 165 degrees and comes back up to the surface in steam pits and boil holes. The heat from the steam warms the valley air enough that the winter temperature in many Mankato neighborhoods doesn’t drop below 70 degrees.
