I live here as a student. I enjoy the community here; it's very family family friendly, the public schools are decent, and the job opportunities are diverse. There is not a lot of nightlife, though. It's relatively quiet.

This area is developing really fast. When I first moved here, we lived in the middle of nowhere. Since then, homes, apartments, clinics, and several businesses have been built. This area has a rural feel but is still close to the city. The community is very active and there are many biking paths and parks to enjoy. The whole city comes out in the summer for the farmer's market and performances/events at the amphitheater. The schools are great and the community is very safe. The future of this area is very bright as development continues. The light rail that goes to the cities goes right through town so people can use it to get to work or school. I would definitely choose to live here again!
I love Ramsey. Its just far enough out of the city to have space and close enough to go to a sporting event or Theater Production in downtown Minneapolis. I am a vegetable gardener and have two in a half acres to play with. Its either farmland, wetland, forest, streams/rivers, and lakes out here in Ramsey. If you prefer the friendly neighborhood, Ramsey has that as well. You can pretty much find any style of living in Ramsey except big city. Depending on the time of day, commuting to Minneapolis is 45 minutes by automobile. What I have fallen in love with is, the Northstar train service that runs to Minneapolis. There is a station in Ramsey and that commute is less than 30 minutes. There are multiple trains each day so there is some flexibility with your departure time. Another thing about the Northstar is WIFI. Very convenient for anyone working downtown that lives in Ramsey.
