Last month Money released its annual Best Places list which rates cities around the U.S. looking for the Best Places to live. #2 on the list this year was Minnesota’s very own Eden Prairie. This attractive city has 37 parks, 17 lakes and 200 miles of sidewalks and trails. The city isn’t just beautiful green spaces. It is also home to some big corporate giants like Optum, Starkey, Supervalu, C.H. Robinson. What this means is a low unemployment rate at 3.6%. Eden Prairie has highly rated schools including a top rated Spanish immersion school, low crime rates and a convenient location in relation to highways and downtown really round out this city. In 2014 94% of residents rated the city as a good or excellent place to live and it’s easy to see why.
