Many people may be considering moving, and the relocation options may be great. If a person is thinking about a change of scenery, then they may benefit from living in Minnesota. There are many great aspects to the state, but the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul may give them a number of employment and living options. If this place seems like it may be for you, then checking out the many family-oriented activities could help you feel even better about the spot. Once you get a feel for the area and know where you want to live, pack up your moving boxes and contact your moving company to schedule a date.

Como Zoo and Conservatory
One spot that is a great place for your family to explore what the Twin Cities have to offer is the local zoo. Located in St. Paul, Como Zoo and Conservatory could be fun because for many reasons. One of these is the fact that it is free to enter, unless you want to make a donation, according to local CBS affiliate WCCO-TV. It is open year-round, and has plenty of animals that everyone can enjoy. It is also home to a number of plants to view at the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory. 

Mall of America
Families can also have quite a lot of fun at the Mall of America. This is much more than just a mall. According to Missy Berggren in an article for Minnesota newspaper the Star Tribune, this is the home of an aquarium, as well as a theme park called Nickelodeon Universe. Another option if you get tired of the shopping is to check out the mini golf course at the mall.

Minneapolis Institute of Arts
If you are interested in the arts, or just want a nice destination for your family to spend the day, it could be a good plan to check out the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. According to WCCO-TV, the venue has a special day reserved for families one day a month. This can help children learn about art, as well as make some of their own. However, if you are unable to make the scheduled date, you can still go to the institute on another day without paying a dollar.

Midtown Global Market
Another area that could be quite fun for the family, or even just you and friends or a spouse, is the Midtown Global Market. This is a market that is completely indoors and can give you a multitude of different options to learn about products from around the world, according to Missy Berggren. There are also educational events geared toward children on a weekly basis. Getting to this venue is easy, as it is situated in the Midtown Exchange Building, right in Minneapolis. Here you can park easily and enjoy your day with little issue.

Minnesota Children's Museum
Another place that you may want to take advantage of with the kids is the Minnesota Children's Museum. Due to the name, it is obviously geared toward children, but there may be a time that is perfect for you to bring the kids along. According to WCCO-TV, there is an event once per month where everyone can get in for free. There are multiple exhibits that are permanent fixtures, while others that visit from time to time. Children can get involved in some of the events, while they may also benefit from being present during story times, as well.
