A Shoppers Dream
Most of the states population are urbanised, with more than half inhabiting the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St Paul. Occupying opposing banks on the Mississippi River, the cities reflect the jovial culture of the roots of the early settlers, who were largely German, Irish and Scandinavian. The Twin Cities are renowned for their entertainment, attractions and shopping opportunities. Minneapolis in particular is a shopper’s dream with the mighty Mall of America (which includes an aquarium and amusement park under the same roof as hundreds of shops, restaurants, bars and theatres) situated in its suburb of Bloomington.
