Welcome to Shoreview, MN
Shoreview is a “second ring” suburb of the Twin Cities located in Ramsey County and is home to around 25,000 residents. Located north of St. Paul, Shoreview is bordered by Roseville to the south, Arden Hills to the west, and Vadnais Heights and North Oaks to the east.
Residents of Shoreview can easily access the Twin Cities and surrounding areas as County Highway 96 and Interstate 694 run directly through town while Interstate 35 and State Route 36 are adjacent to the area. However, more than a convenient location, residents are drawn here due to the community spirit, recreational amenities, and ample green space.
The History of Shoreview
Like many of the suburbs of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Shoreview was established in the 1850s by European settlers after the Ojibwe and Dakota indigenous tribes ceded the land to the United States. The Mounds View Township was officially organized in 1958 which includes present-day Shoreview. However, Shoreview did not break away from Mounds View Township until 1957 when it incorporated into it’s own town.
Once it was officially it’s own town, Shoreview grew rapidly. Between 1970 and 1989, residential dwellings tripled, and while new development has slowed, the population is stable and homes for sale in Shoreview are sought after.
Living and Working in Shoreview
Shoreview is more of a residential community, but it also has a thriving economy. Land O’Lakes’ corporate office is located in Shoreview, and Westinghouse, Wells Fargo, and Deluxe Financial all have large offices here. However, most of the residents commute because it’s only 15-20 minutes outside of both downtown St. Paul and Minneapolis.
Living in Shoreview not only means you’re a short drive from all the amenities of the Twin Cities – professional sports events, museums, theaters, and plenty of shopping and dining options, there’s ample reasons to stay in town, too!
Shoreview has seven lakes within its borders, including Turtle Lake, Snail Lake, and Island Lake, and the city uses those lakes as settings for lovely, well-maintained parks and trails. There are 1400 acres of park and open space in the city, including 11 city parks and 55 miles of city and regional trails for biking, jogging, and walking.
