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 a quiet, safe city with many education and work opportunities. The high schools are some of the highest ranked in the state, such as the Math and Science Academy, Woodbury High School, and East Ridge High School. There are plenty of places hiring people for entry level jobs, and there are health clinics for professionals. It is close to St. Paul and Minneapolis, and the commute time to the city is very reasonable, allowing people to easily travel to work in the city.
I have recently purchased a home in Woodbury and have loved it so far. There are many walking trails that I can take my dog on a walk as well as a large dog park to play in. There are many shops and restaurants to explore, but there is also ways to escape and have peace and quiet. Woodbury has a good mix of big city and suburb to please all types of people!
