Sitting on both banks of the Mississippi River, Minneapolis has a diverse culture where locals can always find something to do. If you’re a sports fan, you can cheer on one of the professional teams including the Vikings, Twins, and Timberwolves. Those who prefer the outdoors can enjoy the urban walks and nature trails found in the city and the surrounding area. After a day of fun, you can enjoy the food and drink scene which includes farmers' markets, breweries, and restaurants with great views.
Part of the fun of living in Minneapolis is exploring all the neighborhoods. The downtown core is where you’ll find most of the action with stadiums, live music venues, and some great river walks. Over in the Northside district, you can enjoy year round activities such as fishing, golfing tennis, and more at Theodore Wirth Park. If you really want to get to know the local scene, head to Kingfield where the farmers' market takes place every Sunday from mid-May to October. While enjoying your fresh food, take a stroll along Nicollet Avenue and check out the murals that depict neighborhoods in different eras.
When it comes to local real estate in Minneapolis, 69% of the homes were built prior to 1970. Single-family and apartment complexes make up most of the inventory accounting for 83%. About 29% of homes have 2 bedrooms, but there is also a fair amount that have 3+ bedrooms. If you’re in the market for a new home, there is a lot of choice, but older homes may need some updating.
