first timeposting, kind of browsed around a bit, and noticed quite a few midwesterners/minnesotans around here!

Im moving from a really enjoyable location in MN, to Avondale which by the looks of it seems very close to our andover/coonrapids locations...but not 100% sure. Suburban like is what i mean.

I enjoy minnesota by far, the changing seasons are awesome, something different every few months. except the summer humidity sucks!
Is there much humidity down there?

So any opinions on the Avondale area? I'm moving with my family in a month and have kind of scoped out the area (beenthere before a few years ago off & on) but things change over course of years.

I think the area where we will be heading is near the Airport a few miles from it.

Im excited but sort of nervous, but when i can formally/legally move out on my own i might head back up to MN if worse comes to worse, but being here all my life (16 years) will be a certain change!!!

Hi, I don't know Avondale, but as someone who comes from Mpls herself, I can tell you it is VERY hot here in the summers and not like last week's weather (I was up there). It is not humid like MN, however, but maybe a bit in September. Cox is the main ISP here and their broadband is good. I wish I could say more, but welcome and I hope you like it here

thanks, yeah...the areas look awesome.
theres a Frys, B&N, BestBuy, Costco & samsclub, walmart all in a 15 minute vicinity.
perfect so my memberships will be good and dont have to travel as far as i had to here.

BTW speaking of Frys does anyone know if the Frys on W Buckeye & Avondale BLVD is a Frys Marketplace or the Frys Latino Marketplace?
