Men's Journal Magazine has proclaimed what many of us already know when they selected Minneapolis as one of 18 "coolest towns in America."
Specifically, in its April issue, the magazine is lauding Minneapolis as the "Best Place to Live in a Big City Designed for Getting Outside." The editors say its "countless parks, large biking community and numerous farmers markets" as the reasons.
They also chose Angry Catfish bike and coffee shop owner Joshua Klauck as a "model citizen" of Minneapolis. The magazine says Klauck used a neighborhood grant to spruce up his shop and sells organic coffee and handmade bikes.
Men's Journal chose 18 towns they conclude have mastered the art of living well in the modern world. In its analysis, the magazine took into account factors such as cost of living and the number of sunny days each year.
The April issue of the magazine will appear on newsstands Friday.
