The Twin Cities DEFINITELY felt very large to me! I've only been there once but I really enjoyed it. I especially like how it is a huge metro area with two huge cities as well as several fairly large cities as suburbs but the area still has loads of parks and green space which blend beautifully with the huge buildings! The tall buildings, lakes, rivers, parks and everything coexist perfectly in my opinion! I understand and respect that it may not seem large to those from bigger cities but being from the Dayton,Ohio area, Minneapolis, Saint Paul and their suburbs are pretty large in my eyes! I wasn't there long enough to experience the small town feel per se, but I did experience the friendliness and warmth of the people which was awesome! Even in Minneapolis we still encountered very nice people and my aunt with whom I was travelling agreed with me that the people were nice and friendly and she is NOT into big cities AT ALL (she actually was quite nervous driving in the area traffic as I would also be!) but we both enjoyed our getting lost in Minneapolis. It is the most beautiful big city with beautiful scenery, natural and manmade, and in fact Minneapolis is my favourite big city, we only passed through Saint Paul travelling westbound on I-94 but I have absolutely no doubt that it would also feel big to me! I consider Dayton to be a large city as well so if you're familiar with Dayton,OH and/or its size then you can imagine how I view the Twin cities, but in a GOOD way!
