Eden Prairie has earned a coveted spot on Money’s list of the “Best Places to Live in America,” resting comfortably with a #2 ranking in 2016. But this isn’t the first time the Minneapolis suburb has been ranked at the top of Money’s “Best Places to Live in America” list — in 2010, Eden Prairie was #1 in the nation.
Why Eden Prairie is the Best Place to Live
Money analyzed a variety of factors to determine its “Best Places to Live” rankings, including job growth, accessibility to health care, strength of public schools, and affordability of housing. Eden Prairie’s outdoor amenities and great job market were singled out in Money‘s rankings, but those two factors were not the only reasons why residents and home buyers love this Minneapolis suburb. Here are a few reasons why Eden Prairie is the best place to live, work, and play.
Eden Prairie is Home to Corporate Headquarters
Though the commute to Minneapolis is relatively short from this suburb, not every resident who lives in Eden Prairie works at major companies in the nearby city. Corporations such as Optum, SUPERVALU, C.H. Robinson, MTS Systems Corporation, and Starkey chose Eden Prairie as their headquarters.
The City’s Outdoor Amenities are Plentiful
Eden Prairie features more than 170 miles of multi-use trails, more than 2,250 acres of parkland, and more than 1,300 acres of open space. In addition, the abundance of lakes in and near the city allow residents to enjoy a variety of outdoor activities all year long; swimming, boating, cross-country skiing, and fishing are common.
Eden Prairie is a great choice for home buyers who want to access even more activities close to home. The city is ideally located near the Lake Minnetonka area, which is famous for its unique communities, boating amenities, camping areas, and cruise lines.
