Lakeville Reviews

All Categories
It has a small town feel, but it is close to the cities. It is very safe and one of the best cities in Minnesota. The southern Twin Cities suburbs have some incredible schools, but Lakeville schools rank among the best. Lakeville North High School represents the more modern and wealthy suburbs, while Lakeville South is more rural. Overall, it is a good place to live if you do not mind freezing.

I grew up in Lakeville and I love the people that live here. Every weekend all the neighbor kids play games which are where many of my childhood memories were formed. It is a very safe place to live and my parents appreciated that aspect. It is a great area for babysitting, which I did often, and Lakeville is a very cleanly city. Overall, I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else.
I lived here for awhile and I enjoyed the time! Close to the city and the country side.
A little expensive and there's not much to do but the city is well kept, clean, and the people are nice.
