Minneapolis–Saint Paul Confidence: 81% Arrow up

Minneapolis–Saint Paul is a major metropolitan area built around the Mississippi, Minnesota and St. Croix rivers in east central Minnesota.

The area is commonly known as the Twin Cities after its two largest cities, Minneapolis, the city with the largest population in the state, and Saint Paul, the state capital.

It is an example of twin cities in the sense of geographical proximity.

Minnesotans living outside of Minneapolis and Saint Paul often refer to the two together (or the seven-county metro area collectively) as The Cities.

Minnesota Confidence: 79% Arrow up

Minnesota (locally) is a state in the midwestern and northern regions of the United States.

Minnesota was admitted as the 32nd U.S. state on May 11, 1858, created from the eastern half of the Minnesota Territory.

The state has a large number of lakes, and is known by the slogan "Land of 10,000 Lakes".

Its official motto is L'Étoile du Nord (French: Star of the North).
