Eden Prairie, Minnesota was just ranked as the #1 Best Place to Live in the U.S. by Money Magazine. This neighboring town of Minneapolis boasts a healthy economy, healthy inhabitants, great schools, low crime and plenty of natural beauty.

With a low unemployment rate of 5.1% and 50,000 jobs available in town, not to mention the Minnesota Vikings’ practice facility is located here, you just might want to consider moving to Eden Prairie. While it doesn’t have a bustling downtown, its proximity to Minneapolis makes Eden Prairie an attractive balance of small town and big city living.

If you are planning on moving to Eden Prairie or Minneapolis, start getting prepared as soon as possible. Gather your moving supplies and get to packing.

After moving everything into your new home or your storage unit, get the rocking chair out onto the porch and get ready to live the good ol’ American lifestyle. You’re in our nation’s best small city after all.
