Eden Prairie is located in close proximity to the Minneapolis – St. Paul metro area providing a perfect balance of small town feel and big city amenities.
Chanhassen, Minnesota, no. 4 on Money’s Best Places to Live, has grown a lot since it was first settled in the 1850s. Today there are nearly 30,000 residents in this suburb of Minneapolis.

The citizens of Minnetonka have a great deal of pride in their city. There are dozens of ponds and three major creek corridors in the city. In addition, careful planning has allowed the city to maintain a significant amount of open space, park land and wetland areas. These characteristics help make Minnetonka truly a special community. The community center, a part of the civic center complex on Minnetonka Boulevard and Williston Road, houses an active senior citizens program, as well as a beautiful banquet room and meeting rooms for the public’s use. The city has numerous recreation programs and more than 40 public parks available to residents. In addition, there are many opportunities for citizens to participate in community recreational and volunteer activities.
Bloomington is the fourth largest city in the U.S. state of Minnesota. It is located in Hennepin County on the north bank of the Minnesota River, above its confluence with the Mississippi River. Bloomington lies 10 miles (16 km) south of downtown Minneapolis. Bloomington has more jobs per capita than either Minneapolis or Saint Paul, due to the United States’ largest enclosed shopping center, the Mall of America. The headquarters of Ceridian, Donaldson Company, HealthPartners and Toro, and major operations of Express Scripts, Seagate Technologies and Wells Fargo Bank are also based in the city.
