Rosemount is a great city because it has a small town feel but is also so close to Minneapolis-St. Paul's vibrant community. Every summer, the city holds a week long celebration called Leprechaun Day's that brings the whole community together. I love living here!

Rosemount is a beautiful, and family-friendly suburb. Nice and friendly faces are to be expected, and my experience living here has been incredible! Rosemount is for anybody looking for a safe, warm, and inviting place to call home.
Great area that is continuing to develop. Suburban charm and a close drive to the cities. They have great schools that excel in academics, athletics, and the arts. There is a lot of diversity within the neighborhoods (i.e. young families, older families, couples, retirees, etc).
