Eden Prairie is one of the most sought after suburbs to live in. Eden Prairie real estate has been made popular by the endorsement of MONEY magazine’s “Best Places to Live” in America. It is located 12 miles southwest of the Minneapolis downtown area. Eden Prairie has 17 lakes, approximately 170 miles of multi-use trails, and 2,250 acres of parks which make it a popular choice to look for a home. It’s also the home of the Minnesota Vikings practice facility and the Eden Prairie Center, one of the nicest shopping malls in the Twin Cities area. This city, a great place to work and raise a family, may also soon be connected to downtown Minneapolis via the Light Rail.
