Elk River, MN The Best Of All Worlds

I lived in Elk River for nearly two years and I have nothing but good things to say about the town. Elk River is a perfectly located small town of around 22,000 people. It is right in between larger cities Minneapolis and St. Cloud, making it perfect for those who prefer a small town but still want to enjoy what a big city has to offer. Elk River is located on the banks of both the Elk River and the Mississippi River, as the two rivers come together. The town is a haven for those who love outdoor activities such as fishing, hunting, and hiking. There are 44 parks in and around Elk River to include the Woodland Trails Park, Lions Park, and Hillside City Park. These parks are well manicured and the city puts quite a bit of money into them to ensure families can enjoy them year round. Elk River is a great place to raise a family and the art scene is vibrant. With its close proximity to great shopping in Minneapolis, to include the Mall of America, this town really has the best of both worlds.
