I have had a wonderful eighteen years growing up in Rochester, Minnesota. From city-wide bike trails, local swimming pools and lakes, and many opportunities for retail shopping, Rochester has an unending array of activities available. There are many local churches and non-profit organizations to become involved with and be involved in the community. Rochester provides the perfect combination of the quick pace of a big city and the charming connection found in small towns!
I have lived in Rochester my entire life. It is home and it is growing. We definitely have the Minnesota nice vibe happening here, but it is rather conservative. However, for those who are choosing the medical field as a career there are ample opportunities for employment at the Mayo Clinic. We are very family friendly here and there always seem to be different activities going on for the kids. All and all it's a pretty good place to live if you can handle the harsh winters that we sometimes endure here! Summer is absolutely beautiful!
A medium-sized city with a small-town feel! Amenities meet Minnesota-nice (which indeed is a real thing!) Wonderful walking and biking paths, beautiful weather, and a deep focus on environmental health.
