Small town Saint Peter is a nice town. The people are friendly and the environment is nice with all the parks provided and college near by. There isn’t too many activities for kids aged 13-20, but there is the city of Mankato close by for that. Raising your children in saint Peter wouldn’t be a bad idea considering the high school is one of the best in state.

St.Peter is a small town located in south central Minnesota. Located on the Minnesota river makes it a beautiful place. St.peter is a nice town to raise a family. It’s close to Mankato which is a fairly large city that’s only about 10 minuets away. Anything that you can’t find in st.peter can be found a short drive away in Mankato. St.peter has very good schools and the university there is beautiful too. St.peter has always had that small town feel along with a friendly community feel. It’s a great place to live.
I love the city. It's very peaceful and has a lot of very vibrant people. It's a super friendly vibe and the city is always filled with happy people looking to just enjoy a nice day. There is always people out on walks, out in the parks, or just taking a nice drive. Not to mention the fact that a lot of the city has very good businesses and a lot are super convenient.
