Local Towns Rank Best

Best Places to Live in Minnesota

Money Magazine recently released the 2007 Best Places to Live, and a couple of our Minneapolis suburbs apparently made the grade. The report specifically looked at towns with populations of between 7,500-50,000, as well as areas that "offered the best combination of economic opportunity, good schools, safe streets, things to do and a real sense of community".

Chaska was the top city from Minnesota, coming in at #8. Pros included:
  • Quality of jobs
  • Beautiful setting
  • close proximity to technology and biotech firms
The magazine didn't think to highly of our winters and named it as a con.

The other two local towns that placed were:

Apple Valley # 28th
Vadnais Heights #36th.
