Choosing a house to make into your home can be a stressful process. When you’re trying to find affordable seasonal living, it adds another element altogether. The endless opportunities for water recreation, affordable housing, and the beautiful spring, summer, and early fall that you expect and love from the Midwest is why Minnesota is the perfect place for seasonal living. Still not convinced? Here are some great things about Minnesota and why it?s the best place for affordable seasonal living.

Water Recreation

Whether you’re floating on the Mississippi River or boating/fishing on any of the many lakes, Minnesota has plenty to offer in the way of water recreation. Enjoy a day in the sun by swimming or catching that night’s supper with some great fishing. You’ll catch plenty of smallmouth bass, walleye, and northern pike. You’ll catch more than fish as you enjoy sunning on the water so pack some sunscreen! Minnesota is known for its beautiful watery landscapes. You can also enjoy the beauty of the nature around you with hikes along the shoreline. Hit some bike trails then cool down with a swim–there’s so much to do here you’ll wish the summers were longer! You’ll fall in love with Minnesota summers and the summers will love you right back!

Affordable Seasonal Living

With a relatively low cost of living and a high median household income, Minnesota is a great place to call home–even if it’s just for part of the year. With the abundance of waterfront properties, Minnesota is also a great place for seasonal living. Many seasonal living facilities have extra amenities that are included in your association fees so, even if you don’t want to go out on a lake or the river, you’ll have plenty of activities to keep you busy! Traveler’s Country Club on the Mississippi has a 9 hole executive golf course, Pickleball, heated swimming pool, among many other activities, that’s free to residents.  As a result, you don’t have to spend extra money to do a lot of fun things. Minnesota’s strength in terms of the low cost of living and affordability, low poverty rates, and high education really prove that it’s the best place to live seasonally or otherwise.

Minnesota Magic

Whether you’ve lived in Minnesota all your life or you’re new to the state, most everyone can agree that there’s something magical about living here. Minnesota is a place to grow up and grow old. Part of what makes it so special is the people and way of life. We enjoy rural living here but we also have a culture in the Twin Cities. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a friendlier atmosphere; imagine actually liking and becoming friends with your next-door neighbor! That’s not so strange in Minnesota.

If you’re looking for the peace you’ll find in nature, plenty of fun water activities, affordability, and great people, Minnesota is exactly what you need. You may come for seasonal living but you’ll never want to leave!
