Perspective on Moving to Minneapolis Minnesota
1. Move to Minneapolis mid May through June or late September into October, for the most comfortable move in.
Moving in during the summer months does have the advantage of daylight hours up to 9:30pm some days. On the other hand, summer heat plus a location on the Mississippi River, with over a dozen nearby lakes and wetlands makes it a mosquitoes paradise as the sun goes down.
Minneapolis enjoys a real winter, offering the outdoor activities many enjoy. Winter there comes with show measured in feet and temperatures down to -41, where Celsius and Fahrenheit are the same. Moving in at that kind of cold is not fun. Further, snow storms can dump surprise delays into the process of getting your house hold goods to the door on time.
2. Minneapolis is only a couple of minutes across the river from Saint Paul and has major traffic flows using I-94, I-394, and I-35. Traffic flow should allow delivery to take place when expected. The only characteristic of Minneapolis traffic flow surfaces after winter, as the potholes and road damage from ploughs and road ice require repair.
