Hennepin County Information
Located in east-central Minnesota, Hennepin County is home to Minneapolis, one half of what is known as the Twin Cities (the other half, Saint Paul, is in Ramsey County). The county has a unique blend of urban and natural features, and is easily the most populated county in the state. In fact, over one in five Minnesota residents call Hennepin County home. Most of these folks live in and around Minneapolis (the county seat), but even with such a large population, the city provides extensive parks and green spaces for residents and visitors to enjoy. The city's park system is unsurpassed, covers more than 16 percent of the area, and incorporates many of the numerous lakes and wetlands in the area. Minneapolis is also considered to be the most literate city in America, as well as one of the most socially progressive and culturally appealing, with lots of live music venues, theaters, visual arts, and more.
Hennepin County is also home to the world famous Mall of America. This megamall is located in Bloomington, and in addition to its more than 500 stores and restaurants, it even has an amusement park! Over 40 million people per year head to the Mall of America to shop, browse, or gaze in wonderment at something that is uniquely American. Finally, the outdoor activities in the county are also worth mentioning; this is the Land of 10,000 Lakes, after all. There are two national protected areas that feature the area's natural terrain and native plants and animals. There are also ample recreational opportunities in these areas, including hiking, biking, and more.
