North Mankato is a small suburban town located within Nicollet County that houses about 13,000 residents. The cost of living is not bad, the average income for this area is about $55,000 with the median home value being $168,000.
Winters here are predictable reasonable, we have never received more than 39 inches here in North Mankato. The summers are warm, comfortable and fun, temperatures fixed on 82 or lower, this is the type of weather terrific for Frisbee, picnics and barbecues. We do a get a few rain showers and a couple of scattered thunderstorms, but nothing severe.
One of the reasons I love living here is the variety of attractions available, like the restaurants, historic museums, monuments, libraries, shopping centers, spa, aquariums, beaches and lakes. I never get bored here and my favorite destinations are the local state parks nearby and Mount Kato Resorts for skiing, snowboarding and biking. This resort is so much fun, always so many different activities to do.
