As one half of the Twin Cities metropolitan region, St. Paul is a bustling and busy town. It is the second largest city in Minnesota in terms of population with more than 3 million residents in the surrounding metropolitan area and about 300,000 residents within the city limits. One of my favorite things about living in St. Paul is the several premier golf courses. The Highland National Golf Course and the Como Golf Course are two of my favorites because of their lush greens and challenging holes. I could spend the entire day out there in the Minnesota weather!
When I’m spending time with my family, we like to go to one of the many St. Paul parks. There are more than 170 to choose from and each of them is ideal for visiting. With over 100 miles of trails throughout the St. Paul parks system, you can get your exercise and enjoy the beautiful nature at the same time.
St. Paul is part of the Twin Cities metropolitan region and has many neighborhoods and communities available. Some of the most sought after St. Paul neighborhoods include Shadow Falls, Crocus Hill, Upper Landing, Caribou Falls, Highland Village and Cathedral Hill among others. Residents of these St. Paul communities have access to nearby features and attractions including the Como Zoo and Conservatory and many area parks like Battle Creek Regional Park, Rice Park and others.
Prices for homes in St. Paul start out around $100,000 for something affordable and practical. However, you can find something ranging all the way up into the millions if you have the budget and lifestyle for something more upscale.
