Minneapolis

Welcome to the home of Great Lakes. The name “Minneapolis” comes from a combination of Dakota Sioux word “mni” which means “water” and “polis” which means city in Greek. Come take a splash in Water City! Minneapolis is waiting for you.

City Overview

Over 390,000 people live in Minneapolis, making it the largest city in the state of Minnesota and the 47th most populous city in the nation. We can thank the innovative students at the University of Minnesota - Minneapolis for masterminding three new apple varieties - the Haralson, Honeycrisp and the Sweetango! Minneapolis is known for its spacious parks, deep lakes, excellent tater tots, and, of course, the artist formerly known as Prince.

Chokecherries, serviceberries, blueberries, thimbleberries, and hazelnuts grow wildly in Minnesota, while krumkake, lingonberries, kransekake, jello salads, padaek, and poblanos are locally consumed foods that have been added not so long ago.
