Aside from the Twin Cities metro area and Duluth, what other towns have a pretty liberal climate, and are popular with people who are interested in culture and the arts ?

Perhaps Grand Marais and Ely, Both towns have lots of artists living in and near, some of whom are well known.

Northfield has that vibe as it is a small town but home to two private colleges, St. Olaf and Carleton College.

Northfield and Grand Marais came immediately to my mind.

Also, Winona is home to the Maritime Art Museum (featuring works by Van Gogh, Monet, Renoir, O'Keefe, Hopper, others) as well as the annual Great River Shakespeare festival.

Nice small town vibe as was stated. Just be prepared for the very liberal views.

This got me wondering.

So I went here (excellent source of Minnesota voting data, by the way) to see:
https://electionresults.sos.state.mn.us/20181106

I ran the numbers on all Northfield precincts and used the gubernatorial election as a proxy for measuring Northfield's 'liberalness'. The result?

In Northfield, Walz received 74.8% of the two-party vote to Johnson's 25.2% (compared to Walz winning the two-party vote 55.9%-44.1% statewide).

Of course, the 2018 election skewed significantly to the left nationwide as a 'blue wave'. Thus, these numbers are a mere snapshot in time and probably exaggerate Northfield's left tilt. If I ran the numbers (sorry, long day - no more number crunching) from 2010 (a 'red wave' year) it would probably show Northfield decidedly less 'liberal (though presumably still decidedly left of center).

Northfield is a college town. Why would you expect it to be anything but liberal?
