I love how close the city is too Lake Minnetonka! Restaurants are picking up with the construction. Long Lake is the perfect get away on a nice day when you don't want the busyness of tonka

Growing up and living in Orono, Minnesota has been great. The conveniences to many local shops is a huge benefit from where I grew up. In the future, I see growth in this area because of the growing population.
There aren't great opportunities in town, but the metro area in general has an abundant amount of job opportunities.
