Best Places ribbon low rez

Savage Minnesota is a suburban community with approximately 30,000 residents. It is conveniently situated between two major transportation routes, Highway 169 and Interstate 35W.

There are many reasons to live in Savage. We were named among the Best Places to Live in America by Money Magazine in 2013 and 2011; and among the Best Affordable Suburbs in the nation by BusinessWeek in 2010. It is recognized as a community where families can live well for less and enjoy top schools, low crime, quality parks and recreation facilities and reasonable commutes. Savage's environmental assets include the Minnesota River, which forms the city's northern border; the 500 acre Savage Fen Wetland Complex, which contains some of the largest calcareous fens in the state; Eagle Creek, one of the last Brown Trout streams in the metro area; and Boiling Springs, a historical landmark. A major industry in Savage is shipping, due to the community's location on the Minnesota River. Private facilities operate along the banks of the river to form the Ports of Savage. The community also offers a large retail base, which includes grocery stores, a variety of restaurants, retail stores and service shops.  Recreational opportunities are provided through 23 city parks, a regional park and hundreds of miles of sidewalks and trails. Three school districts serve Savage: Prior Lake- Savage Area, Burnsville-Eagan-Savage, and Shakopee. The community has one high school, one junior high and five elementary schools within its border. 


Savage's greatest asset, however, is the people who live and work here. Hundreds of residents volunteer in city-sponsored programs and on advisory boards; many more take an active role in community life by donating their time through local churches, schools, civic groups and other organizations.
