I live about 15 minutes outside of Eveleth and Virginia and it is a beautiful area! There is a Mesabi Trail which is paved and it goes through a couple towns and is a great place for biking! There is the Laurentian Divide park which has hiking trials, fitness loop, and great views just out of town. There are lakes near by and this is a great area if you love the outdoors! And of course the Hockey Hall of Fame is located here!

it is a nice small town next to the big city of Virginia MN, also is only 45 minutes away from the big city of Duluth, MN. Some parts of the town are expensive others dirt cheap!
I currently live in Eveleth, I'd like to see more public programs. It's a small town of 3,500 people with multiple bars, liquor stores, and churches. The town also has a small grocery store, two nursing homes, a mental health center, and a library.
