Edina Reviews

All Categories
I moved to Edina Public Schooling in 7th grade. I didn't realize until I graduated and attended a 4-year University of how well the school district prepared me for the transition. It is a beautiful suburb with plenty activities to do. Located their is Simon Mall- Southdale, multiple parks, and a ton of food chains! You will never go hungry or not have anything to view in Edina. Honestly, one of my favorite down times was strolling through the high-end neighborhoods and just looking at the houses. The only downfall would the exclusivity that comes from Edina. It has a reputation of relying on daddy's money. But I like to look at this as a positive. It shows you, with hard work you can achieve a lavish lifestyle and flourish because of your determination.
Review Edina
I love this city! Property taxes are reasonable. The police are great and the schools are wonderful. Construction is a bit of a mess, but that's just a part of living in Minnesota. I'm not far from anything and it's easy to get around
Edina is a very nice city right outside of Minneapolis. The city is very safe and has a great public school system. The student from Edina are highly educated and very well prepared for college after graduation. The neighborhoods are safe and family friendly. There are many job opportunities in Edina and it is really close to Minneapolis and St. Paul. There are also great public transportation connections to commute to Minneapolis and St. Paul. The only downfall is the cost of living, it is expensive to reside in Edina.
