I have resided in Maplewood, Minnesota since I was six years old. Since I first moved here, I have been met with nothing but love, open arms, and a true community since then. There is a very low crime in the city and many job opportunities due to the fact that there are many stores, restaurants, and opportunities for community members to open their own businesses. The public schools in the area are very popular and have great academic and athletic resources for students. Affordability is no issue since the average home price is the bracket of the low $100k. To sum up my experience, I would definitely say that Maplewood would have to be one of the greatest, if not, THE greatest suburb in Minnesota.

I enjoy many qualities of Maplewood. This city has friendly neighbors, wonderful local businesses, and numerous vibrant parks. The Maplewood Mall is a great location and an alternative to the Mall of America. There are endless things to do in Maplewood. One thing that could change is the funding of the schools here. The public schools lack basic necessities for students, and funding could change that.
Maplewood is a quiet place to live. Surrounded by woods and much wildlife it is very peaceful. Being on the border with Woodbury, shopping is excellent in Woodbury. Shopping is not up to good standards, when it comes to shopping. We do have some good restaurants. Maplewood is what I considered a sleepy town.
