I used to love to visit Minneapolis/St. Paul. The city was clean and well-lit, the people were friendly and willing to help, and I did not feel uneasy while walking about the city.

Recently, an influx of Somalian 'refugees' flooded into the city/metroplex. These 'refugees' have destroyed many areas of the once beautiful city; turning them into slums and crime ridden areas. These people also cause civil disturbance and make visitors feel uncomfortable and add a sense of danger while visiting.

Minneapolis was great for big-city amenities with midwestern charm. I loved the green ways throughout the city for running and biking as well as the metro that was able to get to activities downtown. It was a great place for young professionals and graduate students.

My favorite places were downtown in between concerts, stadiums, restaurants, festivals, and food markets. The ease of getting around without a car if you lived around the green line stood out for me.
