I enjoy the nature scene in Medina. There are a few neighborhoods that own over 200+ acres of land, and keep them preserved. There are trails in between forests, and it is well-kept. Everyone is very friendly, and there are always local events going on. The public schools in the area are very inclusive, prepared, and involved! While the real estate can be pricey, it definitely is worth it!

Medina is pretty great; it is an odd shape so you sometimes go through another town from Medina back into Medina. However, there is a lot to do including bowling, which I love, and lots of places to eat!
My husband and I have lived here for only a couple of years, but we have thoroughly enjoyed out time living here and plan to stay in this area. Our kids are both starting in the school district this year in the early learning programs and our experience so far with the schools has been wonderful! Medina, in relation to location, is perfect in many ways because it is connected to West Plymouth and Wayzata which contain everything a family could need or want as far as stores, groceries, and things for families to do in the area!
