Our area offers what many are seeking – growing communities that are small enough to be personal yet large enough to have all of the conveniences. Easy access to the Twin Cities metropolitan area and high-quality local amenities help residents find the right balance between work and play.

Located 25 miles north of both Twin Cities downtowns, our area straddles three counties:  Anoka, Washington and Chisago. Our thriving commerce, the variety of natural attractions and hometown charm characterize the communities of Forest Lake, Scandia, Wyoming and Columbus. In fact, Forest Lake was named as one of the “Ten Best Towns in Minnesota” (in 2015 by Niche Local)

High quality schools, both public and private, are a vital part of our communities.
