Excelsior is a western suburb of the Twin Cities, positioned roughly fifteen miles west of Downtown Minneapolis. A small community of around 2,500 people, the city sits on the shores of Lower Lake’s Excelsior Bay and Gideon Bay, giving the locale a beautiful scenic touch to complement its small-town atmosphere. The local rental market includes everything from sensible apartments to suburban homes to swanky lodge-style cabins. The charming Main Street corridor is classic slice of Americana: Within a couple of blocks, you can pick up your groceries, catch a movie at the Excelsior Dock Cinema, enjoy your morning coffee at 318 Café, have a pint after hours at Excelsior Brewing Company, or just enjoy the view of the lake from Excelsior Commons. With its idyllic setting, terrific schools, and exceptionally low crime rate, Excelsior has become a popular home base for Twin Cities commuters, particularly those raising families.
