WE DID IT! Alexandria Named Best Minnesota Town 2019

After being named a finalist in September, Alexandria has been named the Best MN Town of 2019 by Minnesota Monthly.

According to their website, Minnesota Monthly explained the process for selecting the best town came down to things like the responses to questions about the traits and engagement of the town, qualitative and quantitative research (yeah I don’t have a clue either what that means), and well as online voting.

In the end, Alexandria came out on top!

“I’m excited to announce Alexandria as Minnesota Monthly’s 2019 Best Minnesota Town as it truly embodies the spirit of our state. It’s a beautiful year-round destination with a rich history and a bright future.” 

-Reed Fischer, senior editor of Minnesota Monthly.

  • Eagan

  • Grand Marais
  • Lanesboro
  • Moorhead
  • Northfield
  • Savage
  • St. Peter
  • Winona
