"A great place to live."

Carver County is west of Minneapolis about 40 minutes. If you are looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city this is for you. You can still have a manageable commute to Minneapolis and MSP Airport but have a more small town feel. There are many fabulous neighborhoods thru out Carver County that you can call home. It is also a wonderful option for those looking to get a Hobby Farm with some acreage. There are many dining options with plenty of shopping too, Make sure to visit Waconia and also Lake Waconia one of Minnesota's premier fishing lakes. It's the best of all worlds.
Pros
  • Small town charm
  • Great Park and Trails
  • Fabulous Schools
