Quiet • Lakes • Affluent
The small-town vibe is strong in Linden Hills. Craftsman homes sit under tall oak trees, neighbors wave hello, and weekend farmers markets draw crowds of coffee-sipping suburbanites. It's the lakes, though, that have sent property prices through the roof; the peaceful paths around lovely Lake Harriet and Lake Calhoun are a short walk away. Don't be fooled by the bucolic village charm — downtown Minneapolis is just a few miles away.
