West North Central Region (including Minnesota!) projected to be the best place to live in 2032

Not only is Minnesota a great place to live now… according to a Gallup analysis the West North Central Region of the US (Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska and Kansas) are projected to the No. 1 place to live in the in US in 2032.

Of 13 different categories studied, access to water is considered to be one of the most important factors in looking at future livability. You don't have to go very far to find a body of water in the Twin Cities… or in Minnesota, Land of 10,000 Lakes and more.


Whether urban or rural, in the city or at the cabin, lakes and water play a big role in the well-being of Minnesotans… and also play a role in making Minneapolis-St. Paul America's healthiest city.

If you already live here, you can be proud to be a Minnesotan. If you are thinking about moving to Minnesota, come and find out for yourself why we love it here and rank to so high in livability!
