If you’re interested in apartments in Southwest Twin Cities regional area, you’ll find quite a few gems to consider. Edina is the perfect example of a charming Midwest town. With its proximity to the Minneapolis downtown area and its reasonable rents, this city makes a good case for itself as a convenient and affordable home base. Edin Prairie is just a little bit farther out but is also a nice community. With over 60,000 people, the city is big enough to hold its own, yet small enough to provide residents with plenty of green space. Shakopee is located 23 miles from Minneapolis and is a river town. With a teen center, ice arena and aquatic park, it makes a great place for people with children or young adults in the family. All of these towns have much to offer residents, but the access to two major metropolitan areas is something that is hard to come by elsewhere in the state. Hundreds of dining options, entertainment venues and shopping areas are just a short drive from any of these places.
