re:Minneapolis relocation

Thanks for your reply. I appreciate your help. I would like to ask you some more questions, could you send me an email address if that's okay? I am interested in renting a single family home. Also, I am of the Islamic faith, and wear the islamic head covering...was curious about people's tolerance and friendliness in Minneapolis, and Minnesota in general. I am currently in Oklahoma, and I have to say that I haven't met friendlier people. I was worried about the same thing last year upon moving here for my husband's job relocation, and many tripadvisor members from OK soothed my fears. I have only heard good things about MN otherwise. :) Thanks. Suzan

Hi suzan michigan

Minnesota has the largest Somali population outside of the country of Somalia and the largest concentration is in Minneapolis. The majority of Somalis here are Muslim and so the majority of the women wear hijabs/head coverings, long skirts and long-sleeved shirts. In my neighborhood (Northeast Minneapolis) there is a well-established population of people of middle-eastern descent who also dress according to their cultural/religious beliefs. You won't look out-of-place and hopefully won't feel that way either.

Check out the web site www.housinglink.org and go to the PMVR section. PMVR stands for private market vacancy report and there you can find out all of the single family homes that are currently available for rent in Minneapolis or anywhere in Hennepin County.
