Default Twin Cities vs Duluth

For years I have asked this question to myself. I lived in both areas and both offer many things: If a job was not a part of the question where would you live? and what one would you visit? Thanks it would help to know what others think

Simple, Duluth Sucks, Twin Cities rock

Everything from weather, entertainment, recreation, education, intelligence, intellect, cleanliness, etc, is better in the Twin Cities...

Listen to a Duluth Morning Radio show...Its sad. Actually pathetic... Not to mention, the best Target is a Target. Not a Target Greatland, Or a Super, just a Target. The only Target in 100 Miles...

Oh yea, The Paper is pretty entertaining. The main story for the past 2 weeks was a 20 yr old kid who drew a map of a burgalary.. That doesnt even make the papers in the Twin Cities.

If you want culture, life, entertainment, affordability, nice weather, and educated people, go the the Twin Cities.

I wouldn't live in either place for long. Sorry I can't stand the winter. I also don't think Twin Cities is large enough for my taste, not to mention Duluth. If I had to choose to live in either cities though, Twin Cities wins hands down. For example, living here I can go the Institute of Arts every week. It is nice and free. Not to mention so many more retail options. However, if I visit, surely Duluth is the choice. It is close to Lake Superior, which is a big plus. Also several beautiful national and state parks are nearby. There aren't something so compelling to see in the Twin Cities in my opinion. Just another mid-sized city. I know it has some nice theaters and museums, and several lakes, but nothing over the top and truly tourism worthy.

Duluth is an excellent place to visit but I don't think I'd want to live there.

The TC area and Duluth are total opposites. Duluth is an industrial city on the Great Lakes, sharing more in common with Milwaukee. TC area has more fortune 500 companies and more white collar compared to Duluth.

Duluth is more comparable to Rochester I think. Nothing else within the state really comes close to the Twin Cities. And Duluth is really, really hurting economically right now.

From D visited TC a few times last year for a really good time. I haven't been down there for a while. Fab and busy! A lot more things to do. I hate driving down there because I don't know where anything is. The TC has a lot of smug, the weather is hotter, and it is NYC building pretty not nature pretty. TC has a lot more things to do and a way better PT system. I wouldn't mine living down there for awhile though just to see how it is living in a larger metro area.
