The infamous twin of Minneapolis is St. Paul, the capital of Minnesota which has about 277,000 residents in its own right. St. Paul is a nice addition to the area with a Children's Museum, Park Square Theatre, the Saint Paul Farmer's Market and more to offer residents and visitors. St. Paul may be best known for the numerous festivals and events hosted there, including the Flint Hills International Children's Festival, Grand Old Day, Highland Fest, the Hot Summer Jazz Festival and the Minnesota Music Festival. Perhaps the biggest event in St. Paul is the Festival of Nations, which is one of the largest and longest-running multi-ethnic events in the country. Another hugely popular festival is the Winter Carnival, which has been held annually since 1886. Houses for rent in St. Paul also offer access to more permanent attractions, such as Minnesota History Museum, the American Association of Woodturners Gallery of Wood Art, the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory and the Minnesota Museum of American Art.
If outdoor activities appeal to you, St. Paul rental homes have excellent sites for those as well. The city is home to four public golf courses, three of which are a full 18 holes and another that is nine holes. St. Paul also holds more than 170 acres of parkland and open spaces and 100 miles of trails and has 26 miles of Mississippi Riverfront, which is more than any other city. The most visited park in the city is Como Park, and at Mounds Park, you can see great views of downtown St. Paul and the Mississippi River.
