My Present Home Town...

This is the town that I presently claim to have as a hometown. It is roughly one half hour north of downtown Minneapolis. Although the "urban sprawl" really continues so although not one complete town it is pretty close.

I have lived in Anoka for four years now and keep finding out more of the history of the area. It has a very funky little downtown area and a riverside walking path which is a nice walk and has some nice views.

In the very near future another multibillion dollar shopping center is going to be built in Ramsey which is just north of Anoka and the light rail is supposed to connect to that area. That project is expected to be completed in 2009.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A lot of good bars/pubs with food, riverfront area, easy navigation
  • Cons:Lightrail not here yet, and the police station is right on main street
  • In a nutshell:Interesting small town that is on the urban edge.
