I like Circle Pines, MN because there are multiple outdoor activities and you can never get bored. Another plus is that I'm only 20 minutes away from the Twin Cities so if I want to get away from the suburb life, I can take a trip to the city.
I grew up in Circle Pines and I love it! It is such a great place to call home. It has a small town feel, but is close enough to the cities!
