Survey: Americans give cold shoulder to thought of moving to Twin Cities
Last update: January 30, 2009 – 5:08 PM
While “We Like It Here” has become a badge of honor of sorts for inhabitants of the Twin Cities area, a national survey by a respected research firm has found that Americans elsewhere have little interest in moving to the land of the wind-chill factor.
The Pew Research Center released results Thursday of its survey of where Americans would most like and not like to live.
The Top 10 were all in the South or the West, led by Denver. Next were San Diego, Seattle, Orlando, Tampa, San Francisco, Phoenix, Portland, Sacramento and San Antonio.
The Twin Cities area landed 26th in the 30-city metropolis heap, followed by Kansas City, Cincinnati, Cleveland and Detroit.
They really don’t know what they miss by not living here. A convinced and happy immigrant. Me and the Norwegians, eh, Ole?
