Shorewood Reviews

Part of it is on beautiful Lake Minnetonka. Very close to Excelsior with good restaurants, fun bars and interesting stores. A long walking/ biking path takes you through forested areas to the east and west. Close to the city but closer to the great outdoors. Lots of parks and lakeside areas to enjoy it, weather permitting!
Review Shorewood
Wonderful neighborhood to live in family friendly and the school district is great! Plenty of opportunities to explore local towns with lots of activities!
Local businesses tend to be family run, or have a small town feel. There is a large variety of local businesses that makes it easier to continue to shop there rather than large corporate businesses
