Review of Stillwater, Minnesota

Be Still.
Star Rating - 2/5/2017
The downtown is charming. Touristy at times in the summer and fall. Traffic can be a bear during those days. Lots of antique stores, lots of vintage houses. Water adds to the wonderful views. Living there, I think I might have liked it better in the more affluent neighborhoods. There's sort of hit and miss housing market. You might find a wonderful Victorian sitting right next to a neighbor with a rusted out truck sitting in the backyard. I personally liked the place but for the occasional dog pack that followed me home. No, that's not a metaphor. At least when I was there, dogs ran freely through the area. But, it can be quaint, charming. Affordable, yes, not so many convenient big city amenities. But, it's not meant to be big.
