There’s no doubt about it: living in the Twin Cities makes us happy. Minnesota was ranked as the second happiest state in the nation in 2016, and Minneapolis nabbed the number three spot in a recent list of the top 100 “happiest healthiest” cities. With an excellent K-12 education system, a thriving arts community, and trails and parks where we enjoy year-round outdoor fun, it’s no wonder we’re glad to live and work here. Join us!
"It’s certainly cold here during the winter months but it’s not as bad as I expected it to be when I moved here from Chicago. People in the Twin Cities don’t let the weather dictate their lives. They get out and enjoy all the outdoor activities the cities have to offer year-round. The great thing about the Twin Cities is that it has all the best things of a big city—culture, professional sports, and a pretty fantastic food scene—yet it’s easy to navigate."
