A test of "friendliness" generally means measuring how welcome people feel in different cities. Prospective Minneapolis home buyers who are considering whether or not relocating to the Twin Cities is where new residents can expect warm smiles, firm handshakes, and easygoing neighborly welcome – the answer is "Yes"! Minneapolis was granted the top ranking by the Men's Health Magazine recently, joining many other prestigious rankings for being a best place to live.
“I have had the pleasure of helping many families relocate to the Minneapolis metro region over the past 15 years. Most are amazed by how friendly and welcoming neighboring residents are, says Jenna Thuening, owner of Home Destination. “People are quick to wave a warm hello and introduced themselves to newcomers. Known for being ‘Minnesota nice’, it quite common that newcomers find veteran residents ask a new homeowner on the block over for a cup of coffee or dinner in the backyard.”
Individuals and families living in Minneapolis, Minnesota will give some of the warmest and most sincere greetings. Few residents' ability to enjoy living in Minneapolis is negatively impacted by chilling winter temperatures in the Twin Cities. Winning this recognition for friendly dispositions, Minneapolis residents prove to the rest of the country that a barometer doesn’t serve up accurate reading on how friendly you will find residential communities in the metro.
"Too many residents, Minneapolis being recognized as the most sociable city is a top honor, representing the quality of individuals who choose to live here", comments Thuening.
"Every resident of Minneapolis lives within six blocks of a park," says Nicholas Williams, assistant superintendent of recreation services for Minneapolis's parks department. With a host of lakes, walking paths, ice rinks, bike paths, and annual outdoor neighborhood celebrations, families and communities seem to feel closer to each other without a great effort. “Minneapolitans are more likely to play sports, volunteer, and help their neighbors. All of which makes a local park the amenity with the healthiest return on investment,” according to Williams.
According to the recent announcement in Men's Health Magazine, below is a list of the top 10 Most Sociable Cities where you could live and find friendly folks.

"Neighbors are close to you in proximity, to your home, your property line and most important to your family members," says Thuening. Getting along well in daily living with the homeowners next door makes life more pleasant. Being a friendly neighbor helps build stronger Minneapolis residential communities.
