Well, it's looking pretty likely that we will be moving our little family to the Twin Cities in the next 6-12 months. I'm hoping to get some advice on neighborhoods to consider moving into. My wife and I are both 36 years old and we have a 3 year old daughter and 18 month old son. I went out for my first visit about a month ago and spent 3 days checking out the area. I really liked what I saw. I visited the following areas: Seward Excelsior Wayzata Hopkins Saint Louis Park Uptown Edina Saint Paul (up and down Grand & Summit) Our priorities are the following: Good schools Walkability (restaurants, groceries, parks) Family friendly neighborhoods Somewhat progressive culture We'd like to be in Minneapolis, Saint Paul or within the first ring suburbs. I enjoyed Seward for the central location, co-op grocery store, Montessori school and closeness to the Mississippi. We both like what we've seen of Saint Paul (Mac Groveland in particular). We also like the areas around lakes Harriet and Calhoun. Saint Louis Park and Hopkins are high on the list as well. So, please weigh in with your thought, opinions, suggestions, etc. PS: I went to Twin Town (awesome shop) and Willies American Guitars (also an awesome shop).
