About Edina

Small-town charm, big city amenities and everything in between.

Edina is unlike any other city! With distinctive, walk-able neighborhoods, a variety of churches, schools and parks, there’s something for everyone. Edina is home to a number of acclaimed eateries, boutiques and an annual Art Fair that shouldn’t be missed. And if you want renowned music, art or theater, Minneapolis is just minutes away. 

Edina is also the home to world-class public and private schools. (That includes great preschools!) The public high school is consistently ranked among the top 2% in the country; even so, the tax rates are lower than many areas of the Twin Cities. Fairview Southdale Hospital, a top-quality fast response medical facility, is located in Edina, as are many corporate headquarters, including International Dairy Queen, Regis and National Car Rental. 

No matter the season, Edina offers an amazing variety of activities. Summers are a golfer’s paradise, with three historic country clubs and two excellent public courses. Sports and nature lovers can hike, bike, fish, canoe, skate or swim at more than 40 parks and recreation areas in Edina alone. Shoppers will love the Galleria and Southdale Center, the world’s first fully-enclosed shopping mall. Winter days bring cross-country skiing, ice skating at indoor/outdoor rinks and play dates at Edinborough Park, a huge indoor play center where younger children can run, jump and climb their hearts out!
