Shoreview is a great place to live and settle in. There are many parks and lakes in the city to enjoy and take a breathtaking view, especially in the summer. In the winter too, the scenery of snow is fabulous. Safety is the first priority, and that's why the public departments(police, fire, health) are always alert and on-duty. There is a huge community center and a big library. People of all age groups can come and enjoy themselves there. You can buy a house for a reasonable price within your budget. People of all types reside, so there is equality for all. Many big companies such as Deluxe, Boston Scientific, etc. have their offices here. Also, there isn't much traffic, which makes it easy to commute. Many people who live here would also have the same perspective and feedback about the city as I do. Lastly, I would like to say that it's a place worth living.

Shoreview is a great place to grow up! The Mounds View district provides amazing education and while the area itself can get a little boring at times, the Twin Cities are merely 20 minutes away.
Shoreview houses some of the friendliest and hardworking people I've ever met. There is a great diversity in housing and business types and plenty of lakes and parks so there's no bad parts in the area! My personal favorite is the off-leash dog park on Lexington.
