This list got narrowed down from 550 cities that have a population of 65,000 or more.

Minnesota is one of four states with at least three cities on the list. Colorado appears four times; Florida five times; and California six times.

And hey, in case you missed it – Minnesota is awesome at being awesome on lists.
