    What do you like about Minneapolis? You get the feeling of being in a city, but without feeling overly rushed, crowded, or unsafe. The public transportation doesn't totally suck, I've been surviving without a car. The skyline and the lakes are beautiful. It's a great mix of big city culture and nature. There is pretty decent sense of community. Sometimes it feels like a small part of the Northwest coast in the midwest, to me anyway.

    What do you dislike about Minneapolis? For being a big city, it can sometimes feel pretty small once you get to know it. I don't have a car, so I hate it when people want me to go out to the suburbs.

    What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in? I live in Uptown and love it here. I love being by the lakes. Uptown, Downtown, Dinkytown, Northeast...

    How expensive is it? It's not bad, fairly reasonable, especially compared to other "big cities".

    Is it safe? Very safe, as long as you know what parts of town to stay away from. I've never been in a situation where I've felt uncomfortable.

    How is the weather? Well, it's in Minnesota, so the winters are horribly long and cold. The summer is too hot for me, but I know some people like that. I can't get enough of the springs/falls here, but they're too short.

    Additional thoughts? I adore Minneapolis. People are (generally) trying to be friendly to each other and the earth. Decent music scene. There's just a lot of great things here.

    What do you like about Minneapolis? It's a small town culture captured in a big city.
    What do you dislike about Minneapolis? People tend to hang out with the same people they hung out with in high school. Not very open to new people.
    What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in? Great place on Lyndale and around the lakes in Uptown, Northeast is very cool -- the Modern, Psycho Suzie's, etc. St. Paul is full of awesome finds like Art Scraps, the Nook, and Turf Club.
    How expensive is it? Cheapo, but depends on your lifestyle.
    Is it safe? No pepper spray needed
    How is the weather? Horrible winters, but I've never seen such complete love of summers. Art Car Parades, block parties, movies and music at the Walker, canoeing in Uptown, etc.
    Additional thoughts? You have to be outgoing to move here and don't expect to make friends quickly, but once you do, they'll love you for life. Terrible public transportation. Very compasionate culture. Minnesota Public radio and The Current are wonderful. Good mix of colleges. Great public green spaces.
