America's Best Cities

No. 5 Minneapolis/St. Paul

The Twin Cities came across to readers as a paragon of good taste and intellect, winning the survey for both smart locals and cool home décor shops. “St. Paul has great Midcentury Modern shops,” affirmed T+L reader Nellie Debruyn on Facebook. “Several of the best—Up Six Vintage; Classic Retro at Pete’s; Succotash—are on the light-rail corridor.” And despite the fact that the Minnesota metropolis scored near the bottom of the survey for long winters, voters were undeterred, ranking it No. 1 for its great parks.
