This is true.
Just keep in mind the (oft-pointed out) flipside that there is higher competition for those jobs in Boston, and that the cost of living is much higher around Beantown than in the Twin Cities. A house that runs $300,000 in Minneapolis will run you $600,000 in Cambridge.
That being said, if all other things were equal, I would be hard pressed to turn down Boston for Minnesota. Had I gotten into BC, it might have been an issue
Boston's great. Minneapolis seems great, too, in a different way.
