I'm so blessed ... I live in Plymouth MN

Best places to live: Plymouth, MN


Topnotch schools, good jobs, affordable housing, low crime, an active outdoor culture - yep, they're pretty much all here. Plymouth could have become just another Twin Cities suburb, but more than 50,000 jobs keep residents working there.

Home prices are within reason: The typical three-bedroom, two-bath house goes for $350,000. The city's main school district is ranked among the top three in the state, and for culture, Plymouth's open-air amphitheater, the Hilde Performance Center, hosts numerous summer concerts. Residents are a quick drive from the Mall of America, the nation's biggest mall.

And did we mention the outdoors? Plymouth boasts more than half a dozen sizable bodies of water. Of course, this being Minnesota, winter can be brutal: January's average low temperature is about 13°F. But when the mercury plummets, the locals get busy. In February the city hosts a Fire & Ice Festival that includes mini-golf, bowling and basketball - all right on the ice.

Comment: I'm actually surprised! To my Brother (who lives in Maple Grove): I'm glad I don't live in that slum (joking!)!

  1. Now, because of this designation, Plymouth will now be even more unaffordable. I am thankful to live in the "slum" of Maple Grove, which is still affordable to the common man. Plymouth will be the next "Beverly Hills" of the Twin Cities.
