We live on the north side of Vadnais Heights. We have been here for about 4 months and love it. The amenities nearby are updated with upscale grocery stores and eateries. The area is quiet and the people around us are friendly. Extremely kid-friendly as well, which is a plus!

I live in Vadnais Heights and am a senior at Mounds View High School. I appreciate the town for what it's worth, it's a suburban paradise. But it makes me feel constricted I feel as if I can't reach my full potential in this suburban town. I need to be out there in the world surrounded by wilderness I want to be surrounded by animals, not humans. If I'm going to go into environmental science I need to get into a different setting to change my mindset of life. So in conclusion, Vadnais Heights has served me a good childhood, but if I stay here I won't reach my full potential.
Community is great! Events/get together for the community are awesome. It is a also a very safe area!
