Some growth is from higher gas prices and from people baby boomers and young professional looking for the vibrant life of the city – which Minneapolis has plenty. One local resident living downtown said ” Its like living at the mall – everything is easy and convenient. I don’t even own a car any longer. I bike, walk, take the light rail or a cab. If I need to go out of town – which is rare – I rent a car.” “What’s not to like. I can head over and catch a Twins game or go out to dinner at any one of hundreds of places.”
