I've lived in Maplewood all my life, and I love it here! It's a beautiful suburb that successfully captures the Minnesota-nice vibe. The only drawback I've noticed is that my family as well as a next-door neighbor have each experienced a robbery in the past few years. They were both moderate at most.

Maplewood is a great community to live in. Great quiet area for older individuals, but also affordable to younger families raising children. School districts are great. Overall, a very safe area to live in. It has easy commute times to Saint Paul and Minneapolis.
Great place to live because it is a safe place, good schools and fun community to grow up in. The suburb is between major freeways so transportation is very accessible. My experience growing up in the city of Maplewood has been a good experience because it is a close knit community. The city has good parks, good schools and plenty of shopping. Lots of diversity. I would consider remaining in the city when I graduate from school and find a good job. The city wants to make it a place for everyone to raise a family.
