This list is BS. They just list random Twin City suburbs.

Have these Money magazine people ever looked into Stillwater?
You have your new construction homes with the curvy streets and culdesacs. plus you have the main part of town with the older homes, downtown, more simple street layout and a RIVER!

These things always seem kind of silly. The data used for this one seems questionable too. There are only 3 colleges/universities/professional schools within 30 miles of St. Paul??? And no colleges/universities within 30 miles of Duluth? There are only 4 museums within 30 miles of St. Paul and Minneapolis??? But 5 museums within 30 miles of Maple Grove or Eden Prairie or Lakeville or Woodbury?

Eden Prairie, Woodbury, Eagan, Lakeville, and Maple Grove? I'd much rather live in St. Louis Park, Hopkins, or Roseville. At least these suburbs have more character and are much closer to the cities. Sure the other suburbs are like a new shiny toy, but they are soulless for the most part.

This is just my opinion, but I think that Woodbury is the best, just because of the connection to the public and recreational work.

Not sure what his definition of "soulless" is, but I'm not sure rapid growth is necessarily an indicator of "soul."
