Richfield is probably the most convenient suburb in the Twin Cities. It is near 494, 35W, 35E, 55, 100, 169, and 62...which are basically all the major free ways in the Twin Cities. Takes 15 minutes to get to Roseville, Minneapolis, Saint Paul, Eden Prairie, Eagan, Burnsville...well you get the point.
It is not a flashy suburb, with a vast majority of houses being in the 1 1/2 story 1950s mold, but there is decent yardspace and the homes tend to be well-built aside from the far west and north ends which buffer Minneapolis and the Airport.
It is an absolutely wonderful place to own a first home.
