Twin Cities

Twin Cities

My Hometown

I’ve lived in the Twin Cities for over a couple of decades now, and I couldn’t be more proud to call it my adopted hometown. Not only is it a beautiful city, but it has an incredible food scene, a passion for the arts, and it is filled with wonderful people. Since I do call the Cities my home, people ask me all of the time what they should check out while they’re here. Here are just a few of my recommendations:
