Anyone familiar with Albany, MN? Interested in moving there with family (elem and jr high age kids).

Nice community to live in? Good schools? I see it makes up its own school district, even though it's a small community. Does this work well?

Where does someone living in Albany do their grocery shopping?

I'm very familiar with Albany and it's a nice community with excellent schools. Their test scores are some of the best in the state. Albany also has very good athletic programs.

I agree, Albany is a little gem of a town. There are a lot of college professors/business professionals that live in Albany, which is why the schools are so good. It is a cute town too. There isn't all that much to do right in town, mainly you get together with friends, etc. but it is a quick hop into St. Cloud and also close to St. John's University/College of St. Benedict if you want to go to theater productions, concerts, movies, etc.

I'm originally from Albany, it is a great little town for families. Like was stated, not much to do but St Cloud isn't so far and really neither are the Twin Cities. Great school, great athletics. Grew quite a bit in the 00's. Feel free to PM me if you have any specific questions!

Default North lake

Can anyone tell me about the lake in Albany? Is it spring fed or just a pond with rain run off. Good fishing or recreation ? I went to Albany before but it has been awhile. What kind of drive time till St cloud ? Thanks if some of the locals could answer.
