Raised since diapers in this city! What I like about this area would be the friendliness of the community around it. A lot of wildlife around so might spot a deer or two. Growing up in this neighborhood does have it's perks. Everything is relatively close by. If not you can just hope in the car & it only takes you less than 10 mins to get to one side of the city to the other. I would say one thing that would change would be some of the local businesses that do tend to come in and out of the strips stores. Seems some buisnesses can't seem to make it out here in the suburban area for long unless promoting themselves very well or already having a chain of popularity due to being so popular with the crowds.

Savage is close to where I attend school in Prior Lake. Prior Lake schools are in the top percentage of the entire nation. Getting a quality education is very important to me so that I have a good basis education on which to build when I attend college. My neighbors, teachers and bosses in Savage have helped build my character and morals. Savage is located close to Minneapolis St. Paul and the Minneapolis airport so I can have the offerings of a big city while still living in an affordable housing market. Savage has become my home and I love living there. I would recommend it to anyone that would like to live in a suburb of an active metropolis.
Savage is a very safe and fun environment where we can enjoy daily activities with our families and have a good time. It provides multiple aspects where our city can grow substantially such as its abundance of faculties, grocery stores, shops, parks, and much else. Overall am amazing city.
