I think I want to box. Where do I start?

I'm an almost-thirty-year-old female. Not an athlete by any stretch. I have a pretty strong competitive streak and am looking for an activity that will give me a work out while promoting an overall sense of strength and well being.
Boxing looks pretty cool and fulfills several items on my wish list: can be competitive (or not); can include other people (or not); appears fun, yet challenging.
So, what do I need to know before getting started? I am a complete beginner and have never done any sort of boxing/competitive physical stuff before. I live in the Twin Cities area and budget isn't a primary factor. Ideally, I'm looking at the possibility of boxing (or something like it) as a long-term hobby that will also help me reach my fitness goals.
