The Brainerd Lakes Area is a very desirable place to live in Minnesota. Most people like living here because of the beautiful area that surrounds it. There are trees, lakes, resorts, golf courses, walking trails, biking trails, shops, and restaurants that appeal to many individuals. It’s a great place to raise a family due to the conservative nature of the population and very good public schools. Real estate proves to also be affordable in comparison to the Minneapolis/St. Paul metropolitan areas.
