I think Plymouth is a great place to raise a family. There are so many new neighborhoods going up with really great community events happening all the time. As for someone like me, 22 and living at my parents to save money while I’m in my doctorate program at the university of Minnesota, Plymouth isn’t the most popular place. Yes there are plenty of places to study but usually filled with high schoolers. Overall, Plymouth is a really great safe place to live! Plus we have one of the best 4th of July events called music in Plymouth that I have gone to every year since I moved here in 6th grade!

It's a great city, great schools. Love it. I have lived here all of my life, and the people are great. This is a great city for families and it is very safe. You will love it here! There are quite a few restaurants and the shopping is very close by. Everyone I know who lives here, stays here and it is a fun suburb close to Minneapolis. There are various neighborhoods that range from large homes to apartments and condos. Plenty of small businesses and health clubs as well. The lakes are nearby- Parkers Lake and Medicine Lake. You will find that your neighbors are friendly too.
We love living near Parker's Lake in Plymouth, MN. It is closed to trails and several lakes and yet very conveniently located to shopping malls (Ridgedale), downtown Minneapolis and Lake Minnetonka. The schools are excellent and challenge us to be our very best selves. There is a wide choice of subjects available to high school students, including AP and accelerated courses. Great high school sports, including soccer, dance, nordic and golf. It is a safe community with many long-term residents as well as families. Highly recommend the Hwy 55 and Vicksburg area for its convenience, featuring several grocery stores, a movie theater, nice family restaurants, home improvement stores and several coffee places.
