Full Answer

Minneapolis has been around since about 1850. The city itself has about 400,000 residents but, when combined with St. Paul, which people refer to as the "Twin Cities," the population is around 3.8 million people, as of 2014. One of the city's notable features is the Minneapolis Skyway System. This links downtown Minneapolis buildings together so that people do not have to walk outside in inclement weather. The city is also a cultural hub with many visual arts, performing arts, literature, musical and religious events happening throughout the year.
