What is the capital of Minnesota?

  • St. Paul correct

    Minneapolis, though the biggest city in Minnesota in terms of population, is not the state's capital. Wha? No, that award belongs to St. Paul which prides itself as being "The most livable city in America." You want proof? Okay, according to the city’s website, in 2011 alone, it was featured in the top ranking cities in the following categories by the following publications: Best quality of life and business friendliness by Financial Times; Xcel Energy Center in Top Stadium Experiences by ESPN Magazine; and best job markets in the United States by Forbes. In 2010, Forbes named the Minneapolis/St. Paul area Third Best Market for Young Professionals. Maybe St. Paul is the better twin. Source: StPaul.gov
