New Home Communities in Wright County

Just outside of Minneapolis along I-94 sits the lovely Wright County, home to nearly 300 small lakes and 3000 acres of parks.  Once known as “The Big Woods”, this area’s rolling landscape, dense forests, and abundant water sources will draw you outside whether it’s warm or cold.  With 29 county parks and 31 miles of trails, you can get the whole family outdoors in a safe and inviting environment.  Bring them fishing on one of the six local piers or suit up in swim gear to take advantage of one of the five swimming beaches in summer.

While much of the forest land has made way for the area’s growth, you can get back to nature at Lake Maria State Park, where the maple, oak, and basswood trees still stand tall.  It’s the perfect place for hiking, horseback riding, and cross country skiing, and there are even log camper cabins available when you want to really get back to nature, or bring the kids and camp out under the stars.

You’ll never have to worry about your children’s education in Wright County, as all of the local school districts are highly rated.  In fact, Niche.com ranked Wright’s schools eleventh in a list of the “Best Public Schools in Minnesota” in 2016, with individual districts earning top ratings across the board.  As a result, Niche also ranked the county as fifth in the state for “Best Places to Raise a Family”.  With its rapid growth in recent years, Wright County boasts a higher median income and lower unemployment than average in the state.

Not only is the area safe and relatively affluent, it also offers opportunities available nowhere else.  From mid-November to March each year, local Swan Park in Monticello becomes home to over 2000 Trumpeter Swans fleeing frozen lakes elsewhere.  Near Maple Lake, Ney Park is home to Ney Nature Center, a unique facility that offers school children and other groups an environmental educational experience like no other.

Any golfers in the family will love the tremendous opportunities to hit the greens in Wright County.  With courses from Albertville to St. Michael to Cokato, you never need to travel far for a great round of golf.  Try Wild Marsh Golf Club in the county seat of Buffalo, which is also home to many cultural and historical events and activities.  Visit the Buffalo Nickel Antique Market or go see a show at the Buffalo Community Theater while you’re in town.

There’s great food to be had throughout the county, so try a sampling when you’re ready to go out on the town.  Start your day with a great breakfast at the Prairie Run Café in Albertville, or grab a dinner at River Inn in Hanover.  Love sushi?  Hajime in Elk River offers the raw delicacies along with other Japanese fare.

If Wright County sounds like a great place to live, get started on your search for the perfect house on New Home Source.  We’ll make it easy and convenient to create your own Minnesota home.
