St. Paul is located on the Mississippi River, which separates it from Minneapolis, in eastern Minnesota, near the Wisconsin border. The Twin Cities are home to almost 20 Fortune 1000 company headquarters, seven of which are in St. Paul.

Factors taken into account in the ranking include the number of sports teams, restaurants, dance performances, toy stores, the amount of a city's budget that is spent on recreation, and other factors.
