Crime & Safety
I grew up in Afton and loved being surrounded by open spaces and forests. Having this beautiful and safe area to bike through, hike through, and play in during my childhood is something I appreciate a lot looking back. At the same time, Afton is close enough to the cities to attend special events or even commute.
I love Afton. Afton has a very small town feeling to it with a very cute little street with small, family-owned businesses and restuarants. Afton has a feeling of nature and outdoors activity such as boating, golfing, skiing, fishing and it has a really great bike trail. With it feeling so outdoorsy, it also is within a short driving distance to places like Minneapolis and St. Paul.
I absolutely love the town. I love how there is access to the St. Croix River, bike trails, golfing, skiing, etc. but I am also a 30 minute drive to the Twin Cities.
