Moving to New York was a huge adjustment after living in Minnesota for the first 21 years of my life. I love both places but for very different reasons. Here are a few differences between the two:
Ladies Night at a bar means free drinks in Minnesota. That is UNHEARD OF in New York!
In Minnesota, there is room in your house to play with a Wii. I’m a pro at Just Dance II.
In Minnesota, you can play tennis without needing a $300 membership.
|I totally won 2/3! Can you tell my phone pics apart from my new camera pics?|
When running outside, there is no gorgeous Central Park reservoir to run around near my house in Minnesota.
However, there is room to have a treadmill and workout space in my basement in Minnesota, so I don’t have to go to a gym if I don’t want to.
We enjoy the affordable prices and my favorite burgers in the world at Red Robin in Minnesota!
Your chance of getting a flat tire in New York is much slimmer because you probably don’t own a car.
Additionally, Matt and I enjoyed huge beers for only $5 in Wisconsin but I paid $26 for a very short cab ride from the bars last week. My mom bought a venti Starbucks and it was cheaper than a tall in New York. When it’s 30 degrees out, it’s much easier to hop into a car with heat than it is to walk nearly a mile to the subway. I have family and friends in both states so that’s basically a tie.
I’m not declaring a winner between New York and Minnesota because there are too many pros and cons. A bit of my heart lies in both states and that is perfectly fine by me!
