Probably goes on 35 north to North Branch. I used to set my cruise control at 87 everytime going to and from Duluth, no tickets in about 20 trips in last few years, but I was never passed either.

So if he does 90 mph all the way up 35 to North Branch, that still leaves 15 miles on Hwy 95 into Cambridge to be covered at 90 mph. I’m not buying it.

I agree!

I live in Blaine just off 65 and think that would probably be the furthest south you'd want to be. You'll be heading against traffic going north, so it wouldn't be that bad, but it's a pretty dull drive between here and Cambridge.

Have you looked at Andover or Ham Lake? There are some really nice homes just east of 65 in Ham Lake. Andover is known for its schools and there are some great housing options there as well. Both would be closer than Blaine.

Take note that construction on 65 is in full swing and they already have it down to one lane in many spots. That would be a pain during rush hour. I have no idea what they're doing with those u-turn lanes around Viking.......just make 65 a full access highway with exits and get it over with!

Wow tough crowd! I say 30 minutes you say 41. Split the difference 35.5 minutes. Sheesh!

And if op works in Cambridge it’s against the rush hour traffic. Sounds like OP might be living there, so moot point. Enjoy Cambridge!

If you know your work location is in Cambridge and you have no other commitments in other areas of the Metro I think the obvious choice would be to look within Cambridge itself. Isanti is right there too and the two are often mentioned together. However, it seems to me that Isanti has a slightly worse reputation. If it were me I’d go with Cambridge.

Thanks everyone for the advice. As much as I would love to live in the SW metro, it is just going to be too brutal of a commute. It's hard not having a good "feel" for the north metro/Anoka County, or further north. I think I will target my search around the Andover area but also want to feel out Shoreview, even though general consensus is it's too far. I plan on just going up there and doing some dry run commutes at different times and in different directions in addition to just the normal scoping out of neighborhoods and taking it all in...maybe that will dissuade me from going as far out as Shoreview. It seems like a nice town, though, and more what I'd be looking for in an ideal situation...a little closer to the cities, a little more as far as amenities and stuff we like within easy driving distance. Still, it's a hike from Cambridge. Even with no traffic in summer, Google Maps clocks it as a 45 minute drive.

Lived in centralish Chisago Co. for about 25 years, check in to the northern I35 corridor from Forest Lake to Rush City (including Lindstrom, Chisago City). Not as dumpy as the 65 corridor, easier commute to the Cities and lots of well priced homes of all different kinds of lot sizes.

DM me for the name of an excellent realtor we just sold and bought with very recently.
