I usually get people pointing me in the direction of Ubuntu, but a few have suggested Linux Mint instead. I know LM is at least partially based on Ubuntu and see similarities, but what are the differences between them?

Well Ubuntu is best if you are beginner and want to hands on Linux for the first time.
I did use Linux Mint for months. But had to move on to Ubuntu due to ease of use and on going development work.
Yeah Linux mint was so cool and now ubuntu is taking the game.
