I am moving out of the city but do now know the suburbs very well. Where are some neighborhoods that are affordable ($200,000 and under) single family homes/town homes, safe, good elementary school, near the cute downtown strips??? What public elementary schools are rated best?

I would choose Stillwater over White Bear Lake, both for the schools and the downtown. Stillwater has a great downtown with a wonderful coop and library, as well as the shops and restaurants. There are plenty of neighborhoods with houses and townhouses under 200k in Stillwater. There are a couple of townhouse communities off of Manning, they aren't walkable to downtown, but will only take you a few minutes to drive - I believe that both of those go to Stonebridge Elementary. If you want to be closer to downtown there are numerous single family homes under 200k.

I also hear very good things about Rutherford Elementary in Stillwater. If you are working with an agent I would have them show you something in your price range in Rutherford's attendance zone as well. Good luck with your search.
