Review of Minneapolis, Minnesota

My Opinion of the City
Star Rating - 9/14/2019
I've lived here for three years. I'm originally from a very rual state so I think I'm alittle biased because the city I moved from had a population of about 50,000. Overall I really like living in Minneapolis. I had been looking for bigger city to move to and of all the cities I visited I felt the most comfortable in Minneapolis. I don't what it is about this city but its a really easy and fun place to live. I was shocked to see there's cultural activities such as theatres and museums here. My favorite place to go is the Minneapolis institute of Art.
I was also shocked at the all parks and land that surround the city and that the streets are clean. Other cities I've been to that have the same population are not as clean. How modern the downtown buldings are is something I was surprised by. My first days here I would sit in park so I could look at the skyscrapers. I also like how easy it is to navigate and I think the public transit is good for a city its size even though I do get confused by Minneapolis and St. Paul being across the river it's hard to tell what city your in.
As far as what people are like, I think people are friendly. I'm a very introverted personality so I like to keep to myself. I don't go to nightclubs and bars so I have not really felt the passive aggressiveness that others have mentioned. To be honest the fact that people are more closed off here works for me because I have an introverted personality.
As far as weather goes I don't think it's awful and the winter is colder than what I'm used but what I really hate about winter here is how long it lasts. When it's April and it still snows when my hometown has warm spring weather I get in a bad mood. So I really love like Minneapolis. It's a beautiful fun yet easy going city.
