Minneapolis is home to a robust African American community, a strong Native American heritage, the largest Somali population in the U.S., the largest Hmong population outside Laos, the second-largest Vietnamese and Ethiopian populations and one of the fastest-growing Latino/Hispanic populations. The city’s many distinctive neighborhoods offer rich places for visitors to discover a plethora of ethnic shopping, dining and entertainment possibilities.
