Benefits of Living in Minnesota

So you're leaving New York and moving to Minnesota, which is the 22nd largest state in the nation with a population of 5.6 million. Its land mass is pretty big, too, placing it as the 12th biggest in area and allowing its residents some elbow room. U.S. News and World Report ranked Minnesota as the 2nd best state overall according to a measurement of 70 metrics. With New York ranked 21st, you can feel confident that you're making a good move. Here are some important things to know before you go.

Minnesota's Economy is Strong

Economically speaking, Minnesota is ranked 15th in the nation. Unemployment is low and minimum wage is higher than most states. Houses are more expensive around the cities, but still less than you’d pay in New York. With a cost of living index of 95.7, a poverty rate below the national average, and a median income of $74.593, the financial outlook for residents of Minnesota looks positive. The largest companies headquartered in the state include Target, UnitedHealth Group, Cargill, Best Buy, and 3M, offering ample job opportunities.

Explore the

Twin Cities

60% of the state’s population live in the Twin Cities, made up of St. Paul and Minneapolis. Sitting at under nine miles apart, they could almost be a single city, but they are also very different. Minneapolis, often called the “Mini Apple,” may feel familiar to you – just take a look at its skyline. With a population of 430,000, it’s larger than its St. Paul neighbor, but the smaller city is known for being one of the most romantic cities in the U.S. Instead of skyscrapers, St. Paul’s boasts Victorian-style architecture. Both towns carry a high price tag for owning or renting a home, but both will provide you with the highly active, culture-filled lifestyle you’re used to.

Minnesotans are Nice People

If you’ve ever heard the term “Minnesota nice,” it will actually make sense to you when you meet the people of this state. With a refreshing propensity to speak their mind that will remind you of home, the overwhelming impression you’ll form of your new neighbors is that of kindness and a genuine desire to help you feel at home in the state they love.

Minnesotans are Highly Educated

You’ll be happy to know that education is a priority in your new state: Minnesota is ranked 17th in the country for pre-K-12 and higher education education. 49% of the state is college educated. The average graduation rate of 83.2% falls just short of the national average of 85.3%. The best colleges in Minnesota are the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities, University of St. Thomas, and Bethel University.

You'll find

Fabulous Food

Sometimes called the Bread and Butter State, there is so much more than the simple basics when it comes to Minnesota cuisine. With a self-proclaimed specialty for comfort food, you will want to try all of the state’s signature dishes. The Juicy Lucy is a cheese-stuffed burger that is to die for. Get adventurous and try The Jiffy – a Juicy Lucy with peanut butter and bacon. Another Minnesota specialty is the Tater Tot Hotdish: a casserole topped with tater tots. The state also celebrates its cultural heritage with Scandinavian food galore, including lefse, pickled herring, gravlax and Swedish meatballs.

Outdoor Activities Abound

Minnesota is known as Land of 10,000 Lakes. If you enjoy water activities such as paddle sports, fishing, swimming, or boating, Minnesota has got you covered. Even in the winter, the lakes draw crowds for ice skating, ice fishing and, for the crazy, the Minneapolis Polar Bear Plunge. The state is also home to 5 national parks, 76 state parks, 4,000 miles of bike trails, and 500 golf courses, providing you with ample space for hiking, biking, trail running, and hitting the links.

Shop the

Mall of America

If you think New York has big landmarks, check out the massive Mall of America, which opened in 1992. It can hold seven Yankee Stadiums or 258 Statues of Liberty inside its monstrous structure. Today, the mall houses 330 stores, hosts over 400 annual events, and welcomes over 40 million visitors from all over the world, contributing $2 billion to the state’s economy each year. To make it even more impressive, the Mall of America is committed to sustainable energy practices and participates in the use of solar energy, recycling, and water-efficient utilities.


Year-round Festivals

Minnesotans love to party, and they have a festival for everything. The Aquatennial provides one of the nation’s biggest fireworks displays. The Twin Cities Pride Parade attracts nearly half a million visitors annually. Art-a-Whirl brings together more than 800 artists in over 60 locations to showcase their creations, from painting and jewelry to photography and woodcarving. In the colder months, the Great Northern festival includes three winter celebrations with the U.S. Pond Hockey Championships, Loppet Ski Festival, and Winter Carnival.

Get Ready for

Ridiculous Winters

Hold on to your snowblower. You’ve experienced some cold winters in New York, but they don’t prepare you for Minnesota. The northern parts of the state can reach lows of -60 degrees in the depths of winter. Freezing rain, ice, and sleet are all possible, with an average of two annual blizzards and snowfall averages between 30 and 70 inches each year, depending on location. On the positive side, the summers are gorgeous; you can enjoy outdoor activities and sunshine without scorching heat, with average temperatures between the mid-70s and mid-80s.

Minnesotans love their

Sports Teams
