Reasons to Live in Minneapolis

Here are just a few of the reasons you should live in Minneapolis.

Reason #1: The view from your balcony looks like this.


Reason #2: Cool things like Berger Fountain, this whimsical 1970s dandelion-shaped fountain.

Reason #3: Cool music festivals like Rock the Garden and the Basilica Block Party are held right outside your door, letting you see bands like Spoon, Belle and Sebastian, Courtney Barnett, Fitz and the Tantrums, Wilco and more, while barely having to cross the street to get there.

Reason #5: Just out your back door, there's tons of green space--parks, lakes, and trails, almost all suitable places for walking your best friend.
