About Rochester Minnesota

I’ve noticed getting some international visitors to my website. Therefore, maybe its about time I introduced folks to this city. Ever since 1997, I’ve made Rochester, MN my home. This city of about 100,000, was made famous by the Mayo Clinic. They even have the Mayo medical school here. Many famous celebrities have been spotted at the Mayo Clinic, including President Bush Senior. The other big employer in town is IBM Rochester. It is the home of the AS/400 or iSeries eServer platform.

It is a very conservative town, with churches in almost every neighbourhood. Initially when I came here, not known for its cultural diversity, the city has started to attract more international visitors. Soccer fields are also very common in this city. That’s where you can see the many different cultures of the city come together. I keep fit by playing in the city leagues whenever I can.

I realize that Rochester is not the best city for entertainment and nightlife, but it is fairly safe and a great place to raise a family. I am not sure if I’ll live here my whole life. I doubt it, but until circumstances dictate otherwise, I’m sticking with it.
