The overall cost of living in Minneapolis is just slightly above the national average, but like most cities, the neighborhood you live in will determine the amount of rent you'll pay for most apartments in Minneapolis. If you want to live in the heart of the Uptown nightlife you'll pay more than you would for apartments that are further out from the Downtown Minneapolis area. It all depends on your needs and what you want out of your surroundings.
Known as the "Minneapple," by many Minnesotans, Minneapolis contains a thriving theater district for local residents. Venues such as the Guthrie Theater, Walker Art Center and Minneapolis Institute of Arts are all highly regarded throughout the community. In the cold winter months, downtown Minneapolis apartments easily access the skyway. Be sure to take advantage of these heated glass-enclosed pedestrian walkways rather than braving the cold. You can find your way almost anywhere you want to go downtown by way of the skyway.
