My experience in victoria has been wonderful. It's a small, beautiful, secluded city that is a place you can call home. It's a city that is still growing, I see homes constantly being built every year. New businesses are being put in local shopping areas. The crime rate is very low, which is very comforting. I enjoy running my errands without having to drive into the bigger cities, for instance the local grocery store is within 2 miles from my home.

I moved to Victoria when I was just seven years old, reluctantly, as I had to leave my school and friends I adored. Although I was reluctant, I quickly grew to love Victoria. Now as an adult, I have actually moved back to the area because of how irreplaceable it is. The area is beautiful, with countless running and biking paths, many parks and a recreational center for when its too cold out to be outside. It's so nice to not have to worry about safety, as the crime rates are incredibly low. The people are friendly and welcoming, and although the town is getting more populated, it still has the small-town feel I grew up loving. I can't imagine myself anywhere else, and hope to raise my own family in the area one day as well.
Victoria is a wonderful and safe town with charismatic shops and cafés downtown and a friendly atmosphere.

Everyone here is friendly, and this is a quiet place to live that is close to Minneapolis, but small and quaint enough to raise a family.

I would highly recommend living in this area!
