Hi, looking to move to Minneapolis in the next year and need some advice! Looking for a place where it's easy to get to the woods/lakes/trails, the more trees nearby the better. My ideal place–lots of diversity, friendly, people trying to make it in the arts, an independent bookstore, lots of local businesses, easy public transport. Plus great coffee, great food/microbrews. And, um, affordable.

Northeast, specifically near Johnson Street and 29th.

I'd also suggest Merriam Park in Saint Paul, which would work well too.
