Agreed. The vibe and demographics feel similar as well. Newer, isolated metros of similar size that dominate their large respective regions (mountain west/central Great Plains and upper Midwest + Dakotas). Both have healthy economies with highly educated white collar work forces, both are very outdoorsy (although in different ways), both are pretty white, and both are fairly flat. Minneapolis is greener, wetter, and colder; Denver has mountains nearby. Otherwise they’re very similar.

Also, having just briefly visited Charleston, it felt like New Orleans and Boston had a baby.
