Woodbury Reviews

Woodbury is a very safe place and has amazing schools! It's growing larger every year so the diversity is improving which is great as well! There aren't as many businesses and activities as there could be. This forces a lot of people to make the 20-30 minutes drive into the cities to find things to do. It would be great if Woodbury could add more things to do such as eateries, spas, play zones for children, playgrounds, etc.

As a current resident of Woodbury, Minnesota, I am glad to say this is a very nice growing suburb-city! It is a great community and lots of wonderful services (food, lodging, school, health, etc) are easily available.
Woodbury is an awesome place to live, having a laid-back atmosphere despite its proximity to the cities. There has been a lot of recent growth and business startups and there is a good variety of choices when it comes to shopping and entertainment. The schools are among the best in the state, and the people are very friendly. The city layout is more dispersed, which is good for families and property values, but it is lacking in terms of community spaces or gatherings for events.
