Northwest Metro Living: Fall Parade of Homes

Lakes, trails, and parks, oh my! With an abundance of outdoor recreation, like the Baker Park Reserve or the Luce Line State Trail, and the natural beauty of the apple orchards and Noerenberg Memorial Gardens, you’ll never want to leave the northwest metro. This region offers many quiet and convenient communities, just minutes from the Twin Cities. The Wayzata and Westonka school districts of this area are highly ranked, but the learning doesn’t stop there. Head over to Lake Minnetonka, where you can shuttle across the lake in a streetcar steamboat, and learn the history of the area while onboard. Take a look below at our featured neighborhoods, and imagine life in the northwest metro.

To make your home search even easier, we included the Parade of Homes models to visit in each neighborhood so you can find your perfect home, or stop by to talk about building your dream home. These models are open starting Sept. 9 – Oct. 1, Thursdays – Sundays (12-6 PM).
