Walkability and small town feel doesn’t get much better than this

With a walk score of 78, the historic district of Hopkins just north of downtown is a location which combines walkability with an old small town feel… all within 15 minutes of downtown Minneapolis.


I listed a home built in 1900 last week about 2 blocks north of Main Street at 218 8th Ave No. The seller is a third generation Hopkins resident, whose parents live only a few blocks from this house. Obviously, people who stay in the community for generations love living here.

You can walk to almost everything you need in this part of Hopkins… schools, churches, parks and little league ball fields, services, restaurants, movie theater, shopping, center for the arts… even a regional trail.  It feels like an old-fashioned small town… named the 13th friendliest city in America!
