Aerial Westonka

An Ideal Place to Raise a Family

  • The Westonka community preserves the tranquil ambiance of a small town—quiet, charming, and safe—within close proximity of Minneapolis and St. Paul.

    With its 17 miles of shoreline, the Westonka area has long been a summer vacation spot, and its resort atmosphere remains strong. In these small towns, people generally know one another by name and still hold parades through downtown. Yet, within a 30-minute drive, families have access to a full array of urban amenities in Minneapolis and St. Paul.
