Minnetonka is a very great city with lots of fun little shops and paces to eat! It's a very safe city and is home to one of the best school districts in the state. Of course, the city is near Lake Minnetonka, and many fun little shopping areas and residential spaces are located on the edges of the lake. Minnetonka's a nice place to live!

I love living in Minnetonka MN! I love how it's super calm in my neighborhood and the roads are quiet 85% of the time. I loved my experience at Minnetonka High School and how the teachers and my fellow students treated me. The community as a whole has been super supportive of me after losing my friend from a suicide. They have been by my side and never let me feel alone in any situation that I'm in.
Great environment and neighborhoods, as well as close to Minneapolis! I just moved here from a smaller suburb and I am really enjoying it!
