Tour of Roseville, Minnesota

Updated: Apr 12, 2021

Today we're giving you a virtual tour of Roseville Minnesota, it is one of two Twin Cities suburbs that are adjacent to both Saint Paul and Minneapolis. If you're looking for a property with strong neighborhoods, abundant parks, nationally recognized city services, a growing economic base, low city taxes, and a convenient location; watch the video and read on.

Roseville has an urban-suburban vibe, it has a population of roughly 37,000.

A few quick takes:

  • Average single family home price is $340k

  • Majority of houses were built between 60s and 80s

  • Everything from ramblers to split entry’s and split levels

  • Schools get a B+ on and a rating of 6 or 7 on

Roseville's property taxes are some of the lowest in the Twin Cities metropolitan area, owing in part to the extensive commercially zoned land. Several major shopping centers are in Roseville, including Rosedale Center and the Har Mar Mall.

The first Target store was built in 1962 in Roseville and replaced in 2005 with a SuperTarget. Roseville was home to the first Barnes & Noble bookstore outside New York City, and they now have two bookstores in the area.

The city's per-capita retail spending is slightly higher than that of Bloomington, and it has the greatest number of restaurants per capita in the area. A few fast-food stores, such as McDonald's and Dairy Queen, also have their first Minnesota state stores in Roseville.

Roseville is also home to the John Rose Oval, North America's largest outdoor artificial sheet of ice otherwise called a skating rink. The United States national bandy team and its Canadian counterpart usually play friendly games on the rink every November.

The fifth-largest board game publisher in the world, Fantasy Flight Games, is based in Roseville.

Roseville Visitors Association, the Official Visitors Site for Roseville, Old Dutch Foods, the Minnesota Department of Education, and the Minnesota State Lottery are all headquartered in Roseville.
