Great sense of community in this town. Events for everyone, large diverseness in age. Schools are fantastic and crime is lower. Unfortunately, traffic can be an issue here, but you're roughly 20 minutes away from downtown Minneapolis. This town also has a lot of shopping. Many rec places such as Elm Creek, where they have a lot of outdoor activities, and places to walk as well. The only downside is that it seems to be split into 3 different areas.

I love maple grove, it is close to everything and a great place located near everything you need! It is a short distance from the twin cities, and not too far from the airport. Everything you need is located here! It is a beautiful area that is often kept up with. They have every food and store you would ever need to go to!
I work in maple grove and while it can be a great place to catch a movie or go out to eat, the people in the area are middle to high class snobs.. They love to look down on anyone that seems less fortunate than them, as if we don't work as hard as them. I have had many problems here including a rich lady that hit my car in the Wal-Mart parking lot and drove off without alerting anyone.. Seriously great people... All I feel when I think about this place is stress!
