Richfield, Minnesota: A Great Minneapolis Suburb

After living in Richfield for a few years, I've come to appreciate this small city just outside Minneapolis. I've always been a fan of fresh coffee and bagels in the morning and Richfield has plenty of small cafes I can stop by.

The cost of owning a home or renting an apartment is reasonable in Richfield. You'll easily be able to have a comfortable lifestyle here, and the decent selection of part-time and full-time jobs make it relatively easy to find a job as well. The winters can get a little chilly but it's nothing to worry about, and the summers are warm and sunny as well.

One of the best areas in the city is Augsburg Park Library. It's overlooking a park of the same name and it's is a perfect place to spend an afternoon with my dog and a good book. Richfield is certainly a place that I am proud to call my home.
