In addition to the schools, proximity to both Minneapolis and St. Paul is great for those commuting to work into the cities being only about 15-20 minutes.

Tree-lined streets with trick-or-treatable neighborhoods with affordable homes.

Pros + Cons


  • Quaint ‘trick-or-treatable’ neighborhoods

  • Great schools made even sweeter by the affordability of the homes
