We love the crap out of our local music scene, and we have a radio station to prove it
Minnesota is home to a lot of great acts, many of whom got their start in the Twin Cities. Bob Dylan, Prince, The Replacements, Soul Asylum, Husker Du, Atmosphere, POS, Poliça, and a host of others all started here in the Twin Cities. With that, we also have our own extremely unique public radio station that pimps a lot of great local music. While you can stream 89.3 The Current anywhere in the world, it only calls the Twin Cities home.
We have great beaches
Sure, we’re no primo surfing destination, but when it comes to beach bumming in the summer, our beaches are just as good as anywhere else. There’s hot sand, refreshingly cool water, and most of our lakes have great spots to grab lunch and a beer. It’s hard to argue with that.
We’re actually two different cities
That’s right, it’s Minneapolis AND St. Paul. It’s not one city; they’re two distinctly different cities. If you can’t understand that we’ll Minnesota Nice your ass all the way back to wherever it is you came from. Also, Edina, Bloomington, or any other suburb is NOT part of the Twin Cities. They’re suburbs that just want to be part of team TC.
We are the biggest little city
For real. There’s roughly two degrees of separation from one person to the next and that says a lot for a pair of cities that total over 700,000 people. No matter who you’re talking to, they’ll always know somebody that you know. Always.
