North Mankato is a beautiful town filled with a lot of opportunity. The nature is gorgeous and is one of my favorite features. The schools are fairly easily accessible thanks to North Mankato's smaller size, and there are plenty of restaurants and places to shop as well. The North Mankato library is a fantastic place. The town is fairly quiet but also has plenty of fun events periodically. The parks are great. Being right next to the larger Mankato also gives North Mankato residents even more opportunity, including a variety of colleges/universities.

Very nice city, all the aspects of this city are ideal for young families, college students, older couples, and young couples.
I love the quiet, reserved feel of North Mankato while being so close to the jobs and entertainment within Mankato.
