Living in Woodbury, MN
Woodbury is widely considered to be a safe and developing neighborhood which has seen a lot of growth over the past few years. Crime rates are low, while schools are considered to be high quality. Previously considered more of a bedroom community, recent growth has seen a slew of new facilities, shopping areas, restaurants, and entertainment venues appear, making Woodbury more of a self-sufficient city than it was just a few years ago.
It blends suburbia with nature, with clean and tidy neighborhoods and a vast network of public nature trails, parks, and lakes. Modern road networks also ensure that traffic seldom builds up, and commute times are not too long.

It’s a more family-oriented city, and while the location is great for young professionals, it’s perhaps not the ideal place to meet like-minded individuals.

Tips for renting in Woodbury, MN
In spite of recent growth, much of Woodbury remains residential, with most commercial spaces located in the north/northwest of the city. If walkability is important to you, it’s worth seeking out apartments in neighborhoods in these areas. Fortunately, most of the apartment complexes in the city are in neighborhoods that are within walking distance to commercial areas and public transit hubs.
However, if you choose a neighborhood to the south/southeast, it’s almost essential to own a private vehicle to get around. Numerous paved trails do exist, and cycle lanes on roads are not uncommon, though winter can stop cyclists in their tracks.
If you do plan to drive, be aware that winters can be harsh. Even though the city is generally quick to plow the streets, it’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with winter driving conditions by taking an advanced course.
