Minneapolis - St. Paul?

Cost of living is generally cheaper than the major coastal cities. According to CNN, if you make $100,000/year in Seattle, that would be equal to $85,000/year in Minneapolis. Also, the median income in the Twin Cities is considerably higher than the national average. Couple that with a unemployment rate of 4.0%.

Yeah, I've been eyeballing Minneapolis/St. Paul. Seems like a nice place to live and there seem to be an abundance of female massage therapists. The extremely frigid winters are the only thing that I would consider to be negative about Minneapolis/St. Paul based on my research.
