Crime & Safety
My experience with Andover is not the best. It is a nice city but in my neighborhood, since im Asian, they don't seem to like Asians here, not saying that everyone is bad, but not everyone is good. One time my brother was riding four-wheeler s down the road we had the cops called on them even though there was always people(white folks) riding up and down the street like it was nothing. I do like the fact that it is a pretty quite town and the fact that we do have some what of a lot of land here. I would really like to see that everyone is treated equally here and that in the future it will be more diverse.
Very very white. Too conservative and close minded for my tastes. Schools are good, though. Hardly any options for restaurants, though Riverdale is about a 10 minute drive for more places to eat. It wasn't the worst place to grow up, but I think it breeds some really close minded people.
The community is very welcoming and safe. We used to live in a town that was pretty much the same size in Wisconsin and here in Andover, Minnesota it's way better. The neighborhoods are extremely family friendly. Everyone knows their neighbors and get along very well with their neighbors. The schools are amazing and have awesome quality education. Overall this is a wonderful city to raise kids and for people to live in.
