Discover Minneapolis-St. Paul
The Twin Cities (#twincities, #minneapolis, #minnesota), of Minneapolis and St. Paul are a major metropolitan area built around the Mississippi, Minnesota and St. Croix rivers in east central Minnesota. Despite the “Twin” designation, they are separate cities with historic rivalries – Minneapolis on the West bank of the Mississippi is younger, more modern and trendy; St Paul, on the East bank of the river, is older with charming neighborhoods featuring well-preserved Victorian architecture. The Twin Cities boast five art museums, three science museums, two professional orchestras, and the Guthrie Theater—a world-class regional theater overlooking the Mississippi. They also host major league sports teams in all four major professional sports—baseball (Minnesota Twins), football (Minnesota Vikings), hockey (Minnesota Wild) and soccer (Minnesota United FC).
