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 such a nice town. It is small, but such a great place to grow up. I would recommend this town to any family.
The most popular drug store is probably Walgreens; many people go there for everyday items, including me. There are many on campus restaurants and bars in Stadium Village, and my favorite is Buffalo Wild Wings. However, if you want to go to a bigger retail store, you need to either take a bus or the light rail to get to a Target or Walmart.
