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.

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.
