Visitors from all over Minnesota, other nearby states, and even Canada and other more southern parts of the U.S. flock to Shakopee on a regular basis to check out Valleyfair! Amusement Park, the Canterbury Park horse racetrack, SandVenture Aquatic Park, and the nearby Renaissance Festival, and many developed parks, picnic shelters, trails, and natural resources. Many of these visitors subsequently look into Shakopee’s real estate options. In fact, the population has increased from 20,568 (according to the 2000 census) to an estimated 31,233 residents as of 2005, representing a significant growth rate of about 52 percent in just a short time. In 2000, there were 7,790 homes within Shakopee, with 7,525 of them occupied. While many of those homes have likely been snatched up since then (considering the vast population growth that occurred in just five years), there are still many real estate opportunities for you to consider and take advantage of within one of Minnesota's most popular, fun, friendly, and dynamic cities. However, prices have increased (as they have throughout the rest of the state), with estimated median household values increasing from $141,500 in 2000 to $237,800 in 2005.
The city of Shakopee was named after Chief Shakopee, the tribal leader of Teenatahotonwa, the nearby village that was inhabited by Dakota Indian tribes. Today, Shakopee features ancient burial grounds of its native inhabitants near the Minnesota River at the city's Memorial Park.
Besides its excellent recreational options, real estate opportunities, and rich heritage, Shakopee is also home to six great public schools (four primary schools, one middle school, and one high school) as well as the private Shakopee Area Catholic Schools.
