Here Are The 19 Best Places In Minnesota To Raise A Family

As the year closes out we’re looking at all the towns in Minnesota, and who has been doing an amazing job at supporting family, community, holiday traditions, and even retirement. Last week we gave you the top of the list for just about everything, and now we’re delving into the best cities and towns to raise a family. We combined the rankings from Nerdwallet and Niche, and ranked the towns by low crime rates, high performing schools, affordable housing, access to grocery stores, daycare, libraries, and income growth.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

Tell us if your town made the list on the Only in Minnesota Facebook Page! Minnesota is a wonderful place to raise a family, and we all place a lot of value in community and education.
