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.

    • Nelson has been down in recent years in terms of Walleye fishing. Depends on what kind of water you like to fish. The flowage and Moose Lake are good if you like fishing really dark water. Grindstone and Lac Courte Oreilles, maybe even Round are also good walleye lakes, but those lakes have very clear water and will fish completely different than the dark water river impoundments in the area.
    • I think it would be an offensive and experience(post season) up grade. I all reality, we dont have the means to make the trade.  We are nearly out of money(cap space) and only have 11 players.  We need food cheap role players right now.   Only way would be to package Wiggins with future draft picks.  If the analysts are actually correct on how improved we will be, those draft pick wont carry a ton of value.
    •   Well not as many as up by the Emily-Outing area but a few.
    • Still on the fence between going with the cabin or lodge, my dad has a normal lodge and it has tons of room which is great but it also is somewhat heavy for 1 guy to load and pull it seems. I mostly fish with just 1 other person and maby 25% of the time by myself so that was why I was leaning to the cabin which also seemed to have plenty of room for 2 it seemed to me. Also from what I understand the cabin will fit in chevy crew cab box and the lodge won't? I have a 04 crew cab short box so one more incentive for the cabin if thats true.
    • Sounds perfect, thinking your guys reviews will seal the deal for me once I can see one in person again, a hyfax kit will also be on my list as I plan on pulling it behind my sportsman 570. Thanks for the review also AAmerican, it's early to be thinking ice fishing but I'm sure there's people out there like us that are a little anxious!
    • The Chippewa flowage would be a great place to start. I will be honest. Walleye are not what I have ever chosen to Target when I fish up there but the flowage is a great fishery.    Nelson lake would be another choice.
    • I have had 3 of the otter pro xt's, a cabin, lodge and resort. I still have the resort and recently purchased the cabin. I have not had many different brand portables but have fished in other brands buddies have. They are the nicest portables I have personally owned and until I try something I like more I wouldn't change from them at all. The resort is heavy and not something I like dragging far by hand especially loaded with gear and much snow on the lakes. But it has tons of room and I have fished 4 people in it before, a little tight but doable. The cabin I purchased for more hand pulling and an extra for if I have people along. They are very warm and I have fished in them down to -30 deg F. A regular buddy heater keeps them plenty warm, if it isn't to cold or the house is banked well its easily t-shirt weather inside. The resort needs a big buddy heater for colder days sometimes due to the larger size but isn't terrible with a regular. Overall very happy with them all and have been very durable. Also no dripping of water from the ceiling. Highly recommend a set of hyfax for the bottom. I had over 1000 miles pulling my old lodge and they hyfax held up great but I always pulled on snow and not across asphalt much at all.   Changes I have made to them: - added a battery box and inside LEDs  - used stainless screws on the band that hods the fabric to the tub only because I don't like the look of the rusted screws.     If you think you'll be purchasing one I would recommend stopping at a Gander Mountain if you have one near by and getting a set of hyfax since they are going out of business there is a good amount of ice gear. I found hyfax recently there for $15 a set.
    • We are on Lake Edward at WildWoods RV resort just north of Merrifield, MN. It is nice just driving up, unlocking it, playing for the weekend and locker her back up and leaving the frig on.  They let Atheists and Jesus freaks all in!
    •   My wife and I are starting to think about parking ours someplace. I'm tired of trying to get reservations and having to hook and unhook and all that goes with a weekend of camping. Plus I would like to have the toys available like 4-wheeler and boat.   We are looking at places up north. We know several people and like the Emily-Outing-Remer-Hill City area. I think you a further west, right? Brainerd area maybe?
