The seventh largest city in the state of Minnesota, the dynamic city of Plymouth continues to thrive and grow. Plymouth MN was voted as #1 on CNN Money Magazine's Annual Poll of "America's Best Places to Live 2008" for communities with populations between 50,000 to 300,000 residents. Plymouth’s robust blend of residential, business and commercial-industrial districts supports nearly 70,000 residents and more than 51,000 jobs. And it’s family friendly, to boot!
Located west of Minneapolis and St. Paul, it's close proximity to Interstates 394 and 494, not to mention Higways 55 and 169, makes accessing most of the Twin Cities fairly easy. Education, work and recreational activities the big cities offer are within reasonable traveling distance.
In addition to several private schools and colleges, Plymouth boasts a broad education system that encompasses five different school districts: Wayzata District 284, Robbinsdale District 281, Osseo District 279, West Metro Education Project District 6069, and Hopkins District 270.
When residents young and old are ready to let loose, the City of Plymouth offers a high quality, diverse park system that includes 80 miles of interconnected trails and over 1,000 acres of park land, recreation facilities, ball fields, ice rinks, picnic areas, a skate park, and natural open spaces.
Potential home buyers who want to live near Minneapolis and Saint Paul, but not in them, would be remiss to pass up at least a look at a home in the vibrant and energetic community of Plymouth. Now, while prices are still relatively low, may be the ideal time to make a move. Plymouth MN real estate is a promising asset that will likely grow in value as the city evolves and expands.
