Aren't a lot of minorities moving into the inner burbs of Brooklyn Center, Brooklyn Park, Fridley, Richfield, etc?

I am 50% Norwegian so MPLS is naturally a better fit for me overall compared with HOU. I also like the fact that MPLS has plenty of bike trails, natural lakes, and outdoor amenities very nearby. The economy of both cities is better than the US average, but I think MPLS has better demographics and more manageable levels of growth overall.

No, it's not really that cold there. Northern MN and northern WI are far colder in the winter. The Lower Midwest has extremely mild winters so any city further north will obviously be quite a bit colder.

To be fair though, the Twin Cities are further north than even Green Bay. They're at the same latitude as Wausau, which is considered "the gateway to the Northwoods" of Wisconsin. Minneapolis is quite a bit colder in the winter and hotter in the summer than either Milwaukee or Chicago.

Minneapolis holds its own especially considering your comparing Houston (the 4th largest city in the USA) to MPLS.

Ive never been to Houston I know alot of rappers are from there. I dont like gang culture and I hear Houston has plenty of it. I like MPLS but its way too gotdamn cold in the winter, im talking biting killing murderous cold. Puts a deadspin on alot of activity in the winter months. When you have to walk through downtown at 4am to get to work (coldest time of night basically) you will freeze ur nuts off. Takes a tough breed to survive out there in that. Aside from that its a beautiful city with a distinct vibe. I like it. I will move south some day for the weather, but probbaly not to Houston.
