More About Minneapolis, Minnesota

Why not take a trip to:

Minneapolis Mn
is a city in the U.S. state of Minnesota. With a population of 429,954 as of 2020, it is the most populous city in the state and the 46th most populous in the United States. The county seat of Hennepin County, Minneapolis lies along both banks of the Mississippi River, just north of its confluence with the Minnesota River, and adjoins Saint Paul, the state capital of Minnesota.

With one of the nation's best park systems, Minneapolis is abundant in water, with thirteen lakes, wetlands, the Mississippi River, creeks and waterfalls, many connected by parkways in the Grand Rounds National Scenic Byway. The city and surrounding region is the largest population and primary business center between Chicago and Seattle. Minneapolis was historically a marketplace for timber, became the flour milling capital of the world, and, to the present day, preserved its financial clout.

Seven counties covering the Minneapolis–Saint Paul region have a combined population of around 3 million. In 2019, those counties are among sixteen making up the Minneapolis–Saint Paul-Bloomington MN-WI metropolitan area of 3.6 million, and twenty-two making up the combined statistical area of 4.0 million.

Anchoring music and performing arts scenes, Minneapolis is home to both the Guthrie Theater and the First Avenue nightclub. Reflecting the region's status as a center of folk, funk, and alternative rock music, the city was the launching pad for several of the 20th century's most influential musicians, including Bob Dylan and Prince. Hip-hop and rap scenes produced artists Lizzo, Brother Ali, Atmosphere, and Dessa.

In May 2020, the murder of George Floyd, a Black man, by Derek Chauvin, a white officer of the Minneapolis Police Department, occurred in the city. It resulted in global protests and put Minneapolis and racism in the national and international spotlights.
