Moving to Downtown St. Paul
Minnesota’s Twin Cities have a lot to offer in terms of culture, diversity, and everything else you want from urban living. St. Paul may be the more low-key sibling of the two, but its downtown area offers a vibrant social and cultural scene. Whether you’re considering relocating from outside the metro or are thinking about moving downtown from the suburbs, this guide from your local St. Paul storage experts at Acorn Mini Storage will help you make the most of life in the city center.
Why Move to Downtown St. Paul?
Just as people in other cities contemplate leaving suburban life behind for the liveliness and diversity of city living, you’ll find that downtown St. Paul offers a more youthful, vibrant culture than that of the suburbs. The area is walkable and provides tons of indoor and outdoor recreational opportunities. Many downtown areas boast great restaurants and shopping in an environment suitable for families.
Along with government agencies and small- to medium-sized businesses, major corporations like Ecolab, 3M and Securian Financial Group provide plentiful jobs in or near downtown St. Paul. And thanks to telecommuting becoming more and more common, even more options are available through remote work.
Additionally, you’ll find the following benefits in St. Paul:
- Top-notch healthcare
- Wide variety of excellent schools
- Plenty of parking
- Affordable housing compared to other downtowns
Many St. Paul residents commute to its twin city, Minneapolis, by car. Those moving downtown from the St. Paul suburbs will still find the average commute of 25 minutes quite manageable. Few in the area rely on public transportation, but most commutes are short compared with those in other major metropolitan areas.
At first glance, Minnesota’s famous wintry weather makes being a pedestrian less desirable here. However, that’s not the case—St. Paul is extremely walkable, and the city’s record-breaking five-mile expanse of fully enclosed skyways protects you from the elements while getting around downtown.
