It is Friday and Fridays are for fun which is why I put St. Paul before Minneapolis in the title of this blog post. Minneapolis always comes first. Some folks think it is all just one big city called Minneapolis St. Paul.
The twin cities are not really twins and it is easy to get the folks at the local visitors bureau all riled up by pointing out that in St. Paul we roll up the sidewalks early most nights and that a person can go to Minneapolis if they want to party, but can come home to St. Paul for a good nights sleep.
I think I found another important difference between the two cities. In St. Paul we are more trusting. In Minneapolis they put locks on sone of the fire hydrants.
If you want to buy a house you could buy one in Minneapolis but St. Paul is better.
