Falcon Heights is a cozy small-town feel in between the two big cities. With that warm neighborhood allure, it still comes with everything you need from shops to restaurants! I have lived from city-to-city between Minneapolis and Saint Paul, and Falcon Heights has been for sure my favorite. I plan to stay here for a long while.

Falcon Heights is a really good city to live in; It is near the Minnesota State Fair which has many events going on throughout the year, there are many different restaurants to eat at, there are many places to shop close by, including the HarMar Mall and Rosedale Mall. Commuting is easy, as it is close to Highway 36, 280, and 35W, all will lead you to other highways in a short drive.
Falcon Heights is such a nice town. It is small, but such a great place to grow up. I would recommend this town to any family.
