Money will not be a factoreal
Nice pictures of Minneapolis. Very beautiful. My only concern there is only having 3 months of the year to enjoy the outside recreation. All pictures seem to always show summertime.

Yes, because we only go outside three months of the year. The remaining nine months we are locked away in our igloos feasting on polar bears and whale blubber.
What three months would these be, that we venture outside? I hope that your ignorance is not indicative of the California educational system.

By 3 months, do you actually mean 12?

While people who live in year-round mild climates may not have any concept of winter as an enjoyable time of year and think of cold as a thing that must be escaped, people who live here embrace it. When the lakes freeze, you'll see people ice sailing on Lake Calhoun, or ice kitesurfing on Lake Harriet. People go ice skating on Lake of the Isles. All of the city parks and the Chain of Lakes have nordic ski trails. Kids go sledding at the neighborhood hill. Basically every neighborhood park has a hockey rink. When Minnehaha Falls freezes over, it forms a surreal ice cave and becomes a popular photo op spot in the winter.

Not to mention, some of the most awesome events of the year take place outdoors in the winter here, like Red Bull Crashed Ice (which drew 150,000 people this year), the City of Lakes Loppet, the Saint Paul Winter Carnival, The US Pond Hockey Championships, The Polar Bear Plunge, Ice Castles, etc. There are a lot of unique recreational activities that are basically exclusive to Minneapolis–St. Paul because it simply doesn't get cold enough in other US cities.

Shocking, a catty ad hominem from Wizz. Concord may be overpriced, like all of the Bay Area, but San Jose is even more so. But at least you didn't try to deny how generic and boring SJ is lol.

Minneapolis, then Milwaukee, then San Antonio.

I would not live in San Jose unless employment forced me to.

That's the only reason most people choose to move to San Jose, a job.
