About Minneapolis, MN

A map of Minneapolis.

Minneapolis forms the urban core of the Twin Cities region, which includes St. Paul. Minneapolis is the hipper, trendier destination, with a rich cultural scene featuring the Guthrie Theater, a center for theater performance and professional training along the banks of the Mississippi River that's won multiple awards for its architectural design. The Minneapolis Institute of Arts displays nearly 80,000 works that span over 5,000 years, from ancient Egyptian artifacts to European masterpieces. Lots of green spaces encourage outdoor recreation, including Minnehaha Park, a riverside oasis home to the 53-foot-high Minnehaha Falls and picturesque paths for walking and biking. In the winter, Hyland Hills Ski Area, just over 10 miles from downtown, offers downhill skiing and snowboarding. The city's dining scene is underrated, with a vast number of restaurants and various cuisines, and The Mall of America, just a short drive from Downtown Minneapolis in Bloomington, provides a shopper's paradise with over 500 stores.

Vivian rates working as a Travel Post Anesthesia Care Nurse in Minneapolis, MN as a 54 out of 100.
