The last three years have included, Plymouth ('08) Eden Prairie ('07) and another one from the west side of the cities. There are 9 Minnesota cities in the top 100, 7 of which are in the top 50

As far as I'm concerned ANY city in MN is the best place to live. (Well maybe not the cities) I keep checking out the realestate up there and found a really cute log cabin on a big piece of land on a lake (forgot the details) but I do remember it ONLY costs about 2.5 million bucks.

You couldn't pay me to live in Plymouth or Eden Prairie, or for that matter anywhere within 100 miles of the Twin Cities. Been there done that.

I heard the twin cities are getting pretty rough. Thats to bad. I guess it like parts of Orlando. Whats wrong with Plymouth or Eden Prairie? I have also heard from so many people that Ely is the most beautiful place to live but there isnt much for work.

Too much traffic, too high property taxes, too crowded.

I grew up in Champlin, which has grown unbelievably in the years since I left. My parents moved to Plymouth a little over 10 years ago, and have liked the area. My mom's townhouse is close to a park where there is an excellent playground for the grandkids. The city of Plymouth has done a good job of planning park areas for families. The crime rate is not huge, although it is the metro area. There are great shopping areas really close to my mom's as well. It is fun to visit, but after living in rural Minnesota for 20 years, I couldn't live there.

I've driven thru pretty much all the mid and eastern states from MN to TX - MN to FL - FL to PA and Canada. Parts of PA and upstate NY are pretty, and the mountain of KY an TN. But of all places, I prefer MN. I guess even tho its been many years and 1700 miles, I still call it home.

I would agree with this comment.

However, I was born and raised in Plymouth, and I'm back living there again. Plymouth has qualities like a short commute to quality jobs, a great school system, and low crime.

I didn't catch what the criteria were for rating the city selections; it probably wasn't LCM's (Loon Calls/Minute).

During the 1960's, my artist father designed the first "City of Plymouth" logo, still in use today.

    • Waterfront is now called dockside and they are open.  Not sure about tournaments, we don't participate in them because, not fans of what they can do to fish populations.  All these lakes in the area have far to many tournaments which contribute to hurtful results. 
    •  You are like Charles Oakley. Except without any of the the daunting physical attributes and replaced with the voice of Fran Drescher.   Your question is garbage and that's why it's unanswered.  
    •   You can feel free to answer this question too if you like. 
    •   So conversely, decreasing the supply of labor increases the compensation for all the participants in that sector, and increases the cost of the products and services they deliver.    
    •   22 hours ago, Big Dave2 said: As a Christian you would rather see human beings starve or live a difficult and dangerous life when there are prosperous jobs sometimes only a few hundred miles away in American cities, just because that person had the misfortune of being born on one side of a political border? Does your God recognize these borders?   That's to bad. Dave's gone off the deep end and now arguing with himself!
    • I like to chop bacon into tiny pieces and add to the hamburger. But of course juicy lucy's are always good too....    
    • One of my better ones up at the lake last summer. Finely diced fresh garlic, finely diced fresh onion, hand full of shredded cheddar cheese, tea spoon Liq smoke, big spoon of Jalapeno mustered all mixed in meat. Put on a toasted onion bun with a slice of cheddar cheese and topped with sautéed morel mushrooms and bacon! At least the burger was 93% fat free!
    • Dumba possibly back tomorrow night. 2-3 more turnovers in our own zone to deal with.
    • Wow, those are over the top, guys!!!   I make all my burglars the same....splash of worcestershire, cracked pepper, bit of seasoned salt, minced onions, and a couple drops of hickory smoke all mixed in. Sometimes mix in some  coarse sharp shredded cheddar....
