"Ride the Rails"

Hiawatha neighborhood is located on the southeastern edge of Minneapolis and as the signs in the area will tell you, is a “Traditional Bungalow Neighborhood”. This residential claim to fame has also put Hiawatha’s homes in several magazines and books. The best benefit of bungalow type homes is that they are designed and built with affordability and ease of maintenance in mind. The residents of Hiawatha are proud of their streets with well-maintained properties and great yard landscaping. The prices for homes in Hiawatha can be a little steep for some, but considering the great neighborhood and amount of home for the price, it doesn’t seem as overboard as some of the neighborhoods in the lake regions of Minneapolis.

Another one of the great things about Hiawatha is how easy it is for residents to reach other areas by the light-rail transit that runs right along Hiawatha Avenue. You can use this to get to the airport or the Mall of America in just minutes. Recreation is right around the corner too, with bike and pedestrian paths amid beautiful scenery.

While one-third of Hiawatha is open park land, there is also a great offering of restaurants and shopping, providing residents with all of the necessities in their own backyards. Dining, shops, and small grocers are in the commercial district but close enough for residents to access.
Pros
  • beautiful neighborhood
  • easy access with light-rail
Cons
  • homes are on the upper edge of average in price
