The bike trails, especially around the Chain of Lakes and along the river.

Lake Nokomis, Minnehaha Creek and Minnehaha Falls

  • Anders Victor
  • • Research Analyst

Minneapolis, MN

Lake Nokomis, Minnehaha Creek and Minnehaha Falls. How crazy is it that Minneapolis residents can live in a global city, but still be within six blocks of a major lake, a peaceful creek and waterfall so beautiful that it inspired one of the most influential pieces of early American poetry?

The Mississippi River

  • Julie Brown

St. Paul, MN

1) The Mississippi River — No, it’s not the sea, but the Mississippi brings with it restoration of the soul, immense power and our state’s history. It’s always a first choice for walking destinations, and now that I’m on a rowing team, I’m getting to know it even better. 2) A mindset for learning. The Twin Cities has one of the (if not the) most colleges and universities per capita in the nation. The opportunities for learning, even as an adult, are endless — and some are within walking distance. 3) People from around the world — Who would have thought “St. Small” would have people from just about everywhere in the world? But we do. They bring with them new ways to think, eat, dress and live — and it makes our city that much richer. I love St. Paul!

Cedar Lake, Lake of the Isles, and Lake Calhoun

  • Chris Mathew
  • • Marketing Manager

Fargo, ND

Cedar Lake, Lake of the Isles, and Lake Calhoun. Having multiple accessible lakes within a mile of my home is the best.

The bike trails, especially around the Chain of Lakes and along the river.

  • Vivian Chow
  • • Marketing professional

Lexington, KY

The bike trails, especially around the Chain of Lakes and along the river. Best way to spend a beautiful fall day, and a great way to get around the cities. The original Twin Cities Trader Joe’s (first one in the state). I go there at least once or twice a week since it’s a block away. It’s an extension of my kitchen pantry. Rustica Bakery for their Bittersweet Chocolate Cookie. The best chocolate cookie I’ve ever tasted. I was thrilled when the bakery moved to my neighborhood.
