Saint Paul, Minnesota
Saint Paul is one-half of what are known as the Twin Cities. Along with Minneapolis, these two cities are tied to one another and to their importance as ports on the Mississippi and Minnesota Rivers. In its early days, the area was a fortress for fur traders, explorers and missionaries who hoped to convert the large number of native Sioux Indians living nearby.
In modern times the city moved toward housing insurance companies, major software innovators and manufacturing. Home to both Traveler’s Insurance and the 3M Company amongst other huge corporations, Saint Paul continues to put its mark on the nation’s economy.
Fun In A Cold Climate
With such a northerly location, Saint Paul experiences extremely cold winters yet warm summers. The winter is long so there are many attractions built around snow. The annual winter carnival is a large event and encompasses most winter sports, ice sculpting and anything else to do with snow. Because of severe weather, the arts and things indoors have flourished.
There is a vibrant cultural scene with many museums and performing arts centers. While the major sports teams play across the river in Minneapolis, Saint Paul provides exciting sports watching with any number of semi-pro teams. There are 160 parks in the city so there is ample room for any activity you choose once you’ve gotten settled in your Saint Paul apartment.
Saint Paul neighborhoods reflect the nationalities of the many immigrants who found their way north. The Irish, Swedes, Poles, Hungarians and Germans are all represented. There are 17 districts named in Saint Paul and unlike most cities, the most historic area isn’t downtown but one called Dalton’s Bluff and continues to undergo gentrification.
The North End is primarily blue collar while Asian communities are found in the Summitt-University area. Saint Anthony Park is favored by both students and professors, and has a lively feel to it. More upscale is the Macalester-Groveland area with trendy restaurants, boutiques and spectacular views of the Mississippi. Your choice of a Saint Paul apartment will depend on finding the neighborhood that works and fits best with your lifestyle.
North Country Nights
With such an ethnic population mix, one would expect diversity in cuisine and that’s exactly what one finds in Saint Paul. Asian, Italian, Northern European and fusion cuisines are all readily found. Hybrid food like Pan-Asian meets Mexican are found at fun places like Senor Wong’s.
Seek out traditional burgers near the university but wherever your new Saint Paul apartment is located you will find this diversity. Jazz is easy to find during your nights out, and if that isn’t your interest, very good local bands can be heard at Big V’s and the Turf Club. Saint Paul is easy living in the north country.
