    The community is very welcoming and safe. We used to live in a town that was pretty much the same size in Wisconsin and here in Andover, Minnesota it's way better. The neighborhoods are extremely family friendly. Everyone knows their neighbors and get along very well with their neighbors. The schools are amazing and have awesome quality education. Overall this is a wonderful city to raise kids and for people to live in.

    From living in the area for many years, nothing has been troublesome (except maybe traffic but you get that everywhere!). I also live in an area with no kids my age really so growing up there was a lot of traveling to other parts of town to meet up with friends.
