Saint Paul Gay Neighborhoods
As a part of the Twin Cities, it’s somewhat hard to tell where Saint Paul ends and Minneapolis begins. The two have merged into the Minneapolis-Saint Paul metro area, and while there are certainly still boundaries for each city, they’re no longer really that important. Saint Paul is the state’s official capital, though, which does give it some distinction. The 300,000-plus people living there do tend to believe this makes Saint Paul the more important two twins!
In addition to being home to the state government offices and other departments, Saint Paul is also an important business hub. Companies such as 3M, St. Jude Medical, and Ecolab are located here. The city is also known for its outstanding science museum and the Xcel Energy Center, where the Minnesota Wild ice hockey team plays. The Ordway Center for the Performing Arts, the Minnesota Museum of American Art, and the Minnesota Children’s Museum are also popular tourist destinations.
If you’re thinking about moving to the area, you’ll find a lot of charming homes here. Saint Paul and Minneapolis have been called a mini-gay mecca and a refuge in the north-central for LGBTQ. Saint Paul itself doesn’t have a gay neighborhood, but there’s a lot to do in the city itself for LGBTQ people. If you’re looking at condos, expect to pay anywhere from $70,000 to $1.1 million depending on where you’re looking. Single-family homes also have a pretty broad range. Cheaper homes on the outskirts of the city can be found for less than $65,000. The more expensive downtown homes are often priced around $3 million.
