I have lived in Arden Hills my whole life (21 years). It was the best place to grow up. There were many families living on my street, so I had many friends my age. I have always felt safe living in my neighborhood. Never once have I worried about locking up my car or making sure the windows were up; everyone is trustworthy.
There are plenty of middle schools nearby, along with high schools. Furthermore, it is an easy commute to the nearest grocery store. Additionally, 35W and 694 are a only a few minutes away so getting downtown is a breeze.

Arden Hills is a great community for young families who are looking to connect with other young families and build friendships that will last. However, for anyone without younger kids, there isn't much to do, but the proximity to the cities provides other opportunities for adventure near by.
A quiet, safe suburb that is still close enough to the big city, without the disadvantages of living in a big city. Arden Hills is very close to the many businesses of Northeast Minneapolis, and a short way from downtown Minneapolis. Bordering Roseville, a larger more commercial suburb, Arden hills is minutes away from the shopping centers, businesses, and restaurants of Roseville. The area is abundant with walking and biking trails, parks, lakes, and forested areas. It may be difficult to commute if you don't own a car, depending on how close you are to bus lines. There also isn't a large amount of apartment/affordable housing complexes in Arden Hills, though there are many in the neighboring city of Roseville.
