Separated from Minneapolis by the Mississippi River, the eastern half of the Twin Cities is known for being a bit more laid back and subdued. The landscape is dominated by grand government buildings, stately Victorian homes, and tranquil greenspaces, and the local entertainment and recreation options tend to be family-friendly and highbrow.

Folks in Saint Paul love to spend time outdoors. The city has earned international acclaim as one of the most bicycle-friendly communities in America, and many folks choose to get around by bike on a day-to-day basis. The Mississippi River is bordered by massive parks as it snakes around the city, providing lush greenery and scenic views for folks to enjoy. Although the winter months in Minnesota are infamous, locals laugh in the face of sub-freezing temperatures with the Saint Paul Winter Carnival, an immensely popular celebration that draws thousands every year.

Minneapolis typically receives attention for its diverse neighborhoods and wide array of living arrangements, but St. Paul shares its western twin’s impressive range of housing options. Whether you are more interested in living near the hottest nightclubs or the most intriguing historic homes, you'll have no trouble finding a St. Paul neighborhood that suits your unique tastes. While apartments, condos, and houses tend to get more expensive closer to the city center, it’s not hard to find excellent units under $700 per month.

  • Transportation

    For the past several decades, getting around in the Twin Cities has been far easier for those equipped with cars. However, St. Paul cherishes an impressive transportation history; residents are eager to return the local transit system to its former glory. The early stages of this endeavor are being accomplished through improvements to the city bus system, as well as the addition of a light rail line connecting St. Paul to Minneapolis. This transit expansion ensures that, no matter which apartment you call home, you'll have no trouble getting where you need to go.

    Union Depot serves as a transportation hub in St. Paul, connecting Amtrak trains, city buses and such regional bus networks as Greyhound and Jefferson. The historic structure serves as a cultural destination in its own right, with visitors coming from far away to marvel at Union Depot's wonderful architecture and historic splendor.

However, only the St. Paul Grill receives the distinction of being named the city's best restaurant year after year. The food at the St. Paul Grill may be placed firmly in the classic American category, but its preparation by some of Minnesota's finest chefs lends even its basic burgers a feeling of class.

    St. Paul is a foodie paradise, but you don't have to be big on organic or local food to enjoy the local dining scene. If you're a fan of old school eateries, you'll love the iconic Mickey's Diner. The tiny restaurant is based in an old-fashioned dining car, giving it a unique vibe you won't find anywhere else. From burgers and fries to chocolate malts, you can enjoy all of your favorites at Mickey's. If, however, you're in the mood for the rare delight of an amazingly greasy pizza, be sure to stop by Red's Savoy Pizza.
