Maple Grove Makes 41st Best Place To Live In 2008

A recent story by CNN ranks Maple Grove MN number 41st in the best places to live. While not surprising the reasons for this lie in the shopping and natural ammenities that exist within and surrounding Maple Grove. Take for example new high end restaurants like Pittsburgh Blue that have located to Maple Grove. Add to this more high end shopping in walkable malls like the Shoppes At Arbor Lakes and combine with public pools and community centers, great schools and lots of lakes with public access and you've got a community envied all around Minnesota. What started as a barron gravel pit has been developed into the pride of the region, a huge retail and restaurant wonderland that makes up a series of malls and real estate and office developments. Maple Grove also has great festivals like Maple Grove Days featuring contests, music and fireworks as well as an excellent parade which draws crowds on a yearly basis.
