Also wondering about the dating/social scene in Minneapolis. Is it difficult to blend in? Do people accept new comers? From the info I have gathered so far, Minneapolis seems a nice place to spend the next 10 years at, but if locals are like those here in STL...I'd think twice before I move up north.
Gweng--as someone who just moved out of the Twin Cities. I can comment on the social scene in Minneapolis. Its like most cities where all the expensive clubs and bars are in downtown but because Minneapolis is a bit small there all one street (Hennepin Ave), another kind of swanky area is Uptown which is GORGEOUS in the summer. Lots of fun restaurants, bars, stores, and they have great happy hours. There is also Dinkytown which is where all the UofM students/grads enjoy their time. Definitely has a younger feel to it but prices are unbeatable. Minneapolis is pretty diverse anyone can find a great part of town or bar they have a great time at, but I will admit meeting new people can be a little difficult (this may be due to my own shyness) nonetheless Minnesota is known for nice people so you should not be worried! Hope that helps....let me know if I can answer any specific questions about the city for you!
