About the Location
Recently named by Forbes as one of the nation’s healthiest cities, St. Paul and its twin
city Minneapolis have a lot to offer the outdoor enthusiast. With over 90,000 miles of
shoreline and 929 metro area lakes, and some of the best urban biking and hiking trails,
you can hike, bike, paddle, swim or stroll to your hearts content. Ranked as America’s
most bikeable city (as ranked by Bike Score in 2012), you can hop on a rental bike at
one of over 140 stations throughout the city and experience award winning dining, high
end shopping, world class museums, and our incredible trail systems in an
environmentally sustainable way.
In addition to world-class sports teams such as the Minnesota Vikings, the Twins and
Minnesota Wild, the Twin Cities are known for being home to world-class educational
institutions such as the University of Minnesota, Augsburg and McAlester Colleges, and
the University of St. Thomas and University of St. Katherine. As a result of our
emphasis on education, Minneapolis and St. Paul are often noted as having one of the
most literate populations and one of the best metropolitan areas for raising children. In
addition, the Twin Cities house some of the nation’s fastest growing companies and
ranks second only to California for medical technology industry employment, with a
concentration three times that of the nation.
The Minneapolis/St. Paul metropolitan area is home to a little over 3 million people. The
median age of residents is 32 years. The racial/ethnic composition for those reporting to
the Census (and identifying themselves in one category) is 81.6% Non-Hispanic Whites,
