You've probably heard the phrase "Minnesota Nice." Turns out, it can mean very different things. Minnesota natives see it as a representation of being polite and welcoming. People not from Minnesota often don't see it that way, and often have a hard time adapting to life here. Why is that?

They have tips on how to decode Minnesota life (including our passive-aggressive behavior), and be successful while living here.
