Alright, NO ONE says "ya you betch" that is a NOT true lol. You're more likely to hear, "sweet" or in the college community "tight" and the ever popular "cool" If someone says anything close to "Ya" it will be "yep" or "sure" and there is NO accent. Uggg! Having traveled myself I have been told FIRST HAND, that I do NOT have an accent. I have been told I speak faster than most, but NO accent.
Ok lol one of the best things to see is obviously MOA *Mall Of America to non locals* The Quest, formerly owned by Prince, First Av, another awesome club. Otherwise..just wander, that's the most fun thing to do.
Fondest memory: The Quest, The Quest and The Quest, it is my favorite club. Have seen, Stereofuse, Pay The Girl, Von Ray, Alter Bridge, and will be seeing Alter Bridge AGAIN there soon.
If you spend some time here, you'll find Minnesotans extremely welcoming folks.
However, at first Minnesotans sometimes come across as a bit reserved. They aren't necessarily the most outgoing and wild bunch, but when you get to know them, they are extremely warm and friendly and most important, genuine.

Favorite thing: Not everyone is a conservative Midwesterner here. Head to the Hennepin Ave. area south of downtown and you'll find lots of variety.
