Great environment and neighborhoods, as well as close to Minneapolis! I just moved here from a smaller suburb and I am really enjoying it!

Growing up in Minnetonka has been a wonderful experience. The neighborhoods are safe and family friendly. The public schools in Minnetonka and around the area provide proper education for all students. With Lake Minnetonka being so close, it is a great place during the summer for boating, swimming, and just walking around the lake. It is also not very far from Minneapolis or St. Paul, with many bus routes that connect the two.
I love Minnetonka, MN. I've grown up in Minnetonka all my life. There are lots of parks and little hangout spots all over town for children, teenagers, adults, and elders to socialize or catch some peace and quiet. The area is beautiful and has lots to do. If I were to change one thing about Minnetonka, MN, I would have more young people my age move to it.
