Renter’s Guide to Hopkins, MN

Take an 11 mile drive west of Minneapolis and in under 20 minutes (about 1 hour by public transit), you’ll arrive at the suburb of Hopkins in Hennepin County. The city is just 4 square miles in size and bordered by the suburbs of Minnetonka, Saint Louis Park, and Edina.

Yankee and Bohemian farmers first settled in the area in 1850, well before Minnesota even became a state. The settlement grew organically until 3 railways were built through the area. Soon after, factories were established and as workers came, more people flocked to the area to profit off of the growth. Then, the end of World War 2 sparked a building boom in the area and Hopkins finally became a city in 1947. Now, the city of just 4 square miles is home to 18,217 people according to the latest census data.

The weather in Hopkins is similar to most of Minnesota with hot summers and cold winters. In July, residents of Hopkins experience a summer high of 83F and a winter low of 5F in January.
