St. Paul was just voted the Most Romantic North American Getaway in a poll conducted by the website 10Best.com and USA Today.
The run of the contest, which was based on online votes, happened to coincide with the onset of our recent Polar Vortices. We're not saying that we Minnesotans passive aggressively voted ourselves to the top while we were forcibly housebound but... we're not NOT saying that.
Seriously though, Minnesota's capital city did a great job of selling itself as an non-traditional romantic destination. The official entry read, "St. Paul is the smaller, quieter and, many say, the more sophisticated of the Twin Cities. While not an obvious choice as a romantic getaway, couples love it for its diverse romantic offerings, like leisurely paddle-wheeler rides along the Mississippi, beer tastings or ice skating. St. Paul also has a thriving performing arts scene."
In the end, St. Paul edged out 20 other enchanting destinations including San Francisco, Cali., Santa Fe, N.M., and Naples, Fla., for the honor.
Wide array of St. Paul real estate options

Depending on what neighborhood you're interested in, you can live in a mid-1800s estate or a modern home. The city is also booming when it comes to new construction. From condos, lofts and townhomes being built on the Mississippi River to an abundance of multi-family buildings and duplexes, St. Paul is not short of options when it comes to housing.
