Anoka Reviews

Anoka is a very beautiful city with a rich history. The best part about this town is downtown Anoka, which has little shops and restaurants within a 2 mile radius. I would love to see diversity here and people that are more friendly. Everyone keeps to themselves, which is very unusual for a small town.
Review Anoka
I have lived in Anoka for 40 plus years. It is a beautiful, quite town located between 2 rivers. With the increase growth from inner city to our small city, Anoka is dealing with challenging issues in increase homelessness and crime. The police are on top of it and are doing a good job trying to control it.
Small town feel in a suburban atmosphere. Love it here. I like the downtown area for the locally owned shops antiques, and restaurants. A walk by the river is never disappointing.
