The Twin Cities
We have more Fortune 500 companies per capita than any other U.S. city. Target, UnitedHealth Group, Best Buy Co., and The St. Paul Travelers Companies are Fortune 100 companies headquartered here. The diversity of our economy keeps job growth strong and makes us less vulnerable to recession.
Heated, enclosed skyway systems in each downtown link most buildings. The Hiawatha Light Rail Transit line connects downtown Minneapolis and the MSP International Airport to the south.
We are ranked the most literate city in America. We have popular NBA, WNBA, NFL, NHL, Major League Baseball and college teams. Cities Ranked & Rated gives Minneapolis-St. Paul a perfect 10 or 9 rating in each of these leisure and arts/culture categories: zoo/aquarium, amusement park, botanical garden/arboretum, golf course, arts radio, classical music, professional theater, university arts programs, museum, art museum, and science museum.
