Suburban Serenity Minutes Away from the City
What began as a small farming and milling community in the 1860s has blossomed into a beautiful community of single-family homes, enjoyable recreational amenities, and friendly neighbors. Today, residents have easy access to fun things to do both in town and in nearby Minneapolis, thanks to the city's proximity to Highway 62 and Highway 100.
Tucked just 10 miles southwest of Minneapolis, Edina is close to practically everything: major highways to and around the Twin Cities, several large parks and beautiful lakes, popular shopping centers, and conveniences like the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
But convenience isn't the only reason visitors and home buyers alike love this community. Edina is served by schools in award-winning school districts, boasts numerous annual events (including the popular Taste of Edina), and is home to several upscale subdivisions and golf course communities.

Why Do Residents Choose Edina?
Parks & Recreational Fun
Sports, skating, lakefront fun — there truly is something for everyone in this community. During the summer, you can rent paddleboats for a fun afternoon on the lake; during the winter, you can take part in fun outdoor activities like cross-country skiing and ice skating.
Among Edina's many parks and recreation facilities, residents can take advantage of community centers, the Braemar Golf Course, Centennial Lakes Park, and Edinborough Park.
A Booming Local Market
With an unemployment rate well below the national average, Edina is a great place to settle down. The largest employers in the area include the City of Edina, Edina Public Schools, BI Worldwide, and Fairview Southdale Hospital.
While Edina is a top place to live for its high quality of life, it's also sought-after because of its beautiful homes. Most Edina real estate options are single-family homes — priced anywhere between $200,000 and $8 million — but condominiums are also available.
Fantastic Public Schools
The Edina area is served by Edina Public Schools, and around 8,500 students attend the 9 schools in the district. Several Edina schools have earned National Blue Ribbon School honors, and Edina High School was ranked as one of the best high schools in American in 2016.
If your child attends an Edina school, they'll also have a variety of extracirriculars to choose from. More than 84% of students participate in clubs and activities, and the athletic program was recently ranked 8th in the country by Sports Illustrated.
Shopping & Dining
Edina also features numerous retail shopping centers in town, including Southdale Center (the first climate-controlled fully-enclosed mall in the country) as well as Galleria, Yorktown, and Centennial Lakes Plaza. Of course, popular shopping centers in the Twin Cities area, such as the Mall of America, are conveniently located just minutes from Edina.
