Well, Two years ago I went throught this, and now it has come up again. My family is considering a move to Minnesota. My wife had a job offer (in the form of a promotion from her company) to work in Minnetonka. So we flew up for a few days and checked it out. She knows some people from there and so we had an idea of what it was like. Now, she has another opportunity, and it is likely that it will be in Minnetonka as well.
It was a difficult decision last time. We weighed out all of the pros and cons of living where we are (Raleigh, NC) and living there. Both economy's are reasonably good, both have good schools for the kids, lots of things to do, etc. Even the weather. We are originally from Upstate NY, about 60 miles South of Buffalo, so we have been in the cold and snow most of our lives. Here in Raleigh, we have extreme heat instead of the extreme cold.
So here we are looking at houses on the net, and looking at places for me to work. We drove around quite a bit last time we were there, and we seemed to like the areas North of Minnetonka, starting at Plymouth and going up to about Andover.
Anyone got any opinions on that area they would like to share? Places you work, etc.?
My two young boys said they would definately like to get into snowmobiling...
