Moved here from Wisconsin 14 years ago and I don't plan to move again unless there's a compelling family reason to make us go back.

The winters aren't much fun but wisconsins aren't much better.

The state currently has good government while Wisconsin does not. We have everything right here that we want or need so it's all good.

I am happy to be back in Minnesota and living in the metro for the first time! Is it perfect? Nearly. I just wish winter was a little snowier and summers were not so hot. Perhaps it's just the year though.

I seriously just sprained my ocular muscles rolling my eyes at that.

I too am looking to retire to a small town where the social circles are not "closed". As a single 62 year old, I am looking at SE Minnesota area, Mankato and Morris. I too lived in the Bay Area many years and it was so easy to make friends there! I now live in Central SD and people are friendly and say hello, or maybe even meet you for lunch or coffee but in 5 years I have never been invited to someone's home (unless they were having a selling party like tupperware). Any recommendations?

Moved here from North Dakota in 1986 for work. Two years till retirement. Plans are to get out of the crazy traffic of the cities and settle within an hour on some nice lake. Still need to stay somewhat close to the kids and grand kids.

Don't need to be that close the daily hustle and bustle.

Minnesota is the same as SD in that regard, especially small town MN.
