Minneapolis is the largest city in Minnesota and a county seat with a population of almost 430,000 people. Combined with its neighbor city Saint Paul, the two are known as the Twin Cities. Over 3.5 million people live in the Twin Cities metropolitan area.
The city straddles the Mississippi River and has 13 lakes, many wetlands, creeks and waterfalls. Because of the city’s easy access, and its access to water, it is considered as having one of the best park systems in the country.
Minneapolis is home to several Fortune 500 companies – Target, Bancorp, Xcel Energy, Ameriprise Financial and Thrivent Financial. Combined with Saint Paul, the area is the fifth-largest hub of major corporate headquarters in the U.S.
Many people are drawn to the city because of its cultural organizations. Minneapolis has a lot of theater, art, writing and music institutions that entice creative people to visit and even relocate there. A cultural center for theater performances since the mid-1800s, Minneapolis is second only to New York City in number of theater companies per capita.
Minneapolis is home to four professional sports teams after the Minnesota Timberwolves brought NBA basketball back to the city in 1989. The Minnesota Lynx, the city’s WNBA team, have been the most successful sports team in the city, reaching the WNBA finals in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2016 and 2017 and winning in 2011, 2013, 2015 and 2017.
Both the Minnesota Vikings (NFL) and the Minnesota Twins (MLB) have played in the state since 1961. The Minnesota Wild (NHL) and the MLS team Minnesota United FC are also based in Minneapolis.
The city’s collegiate scene is dominated by the University of Minnesota with over 50,000 students. Augsburg University, Minneapolis College of Art and Design and North Central University are also based in the city.
Minneapolis’ public transportation, including two light rail lines and one commuter rail line, as well as bicycle trails and skywalks, mean the city has a lower rate of cars per household (1.3) than the national average (1.8).
Due to this, as well as highway construction, the city eliminated a lot of private parking spots and lots. This makes the remaining parking spots very valuable to many local residents and commuters. Effectively managing these parking spots, lots and garages is more important than ever.
