"Lower Living Costs"

Rice is a small community north of St Cloud on Highway 10. Much of it's appeal is that it still has that small town feel - neighbors get to know each other. Many newer housing areas sprang up with the building boom of the mid-2000's. Cost of housing is lower than average in Rice and the city is part of the respected Sauk Rapids - Rice school district. A 20 minute drive to St Cloud and an hour south of Brainerd/Baxter area.
Pros
  • Quiet, Quaint Small Town
  • Lower Housing Costs
Cons
  • North Bound Hwy 10 Traffic on Friday Nights
