Minnetonka Beach spans just 1.5 square miles, and more than a square mile of that is water. Its population in 2017 was 600-plus people whose average age was 44 years.
The median household income there was last reported to be more than $200000.
The history of “The Beach” stretches back centuries, when Natives and the region's earliest European settlers found the beauty and the richness of the land to be not only meaningful, but also sacred. The earliest recordings from the area can be traced to its settlement in 1872.
When the railroad was constructed in the area, Minnetonka Beach was a summer getaway for the upper class, with James J. Hill purchasing land alongside other regional industrialists. Minnetonka Beach was incorporated as a village in 1894 and, by 1922, was incorporated as one of the smallest cities in the State of Minnesota.
Minnetonka Beach has remained an exclusive city with high property value. Homes along the waterfront are available in small amounts, with prices demanding upwards of $3 million.
In 2017, the median property value was well over $1 million.
Minnetonka Beach's schools, according to Niche.com, are all reportedly A-rated. A total of nine public schools serve the city, with two high school options: Orono High School and Mound Westonka High School.
The best of Minnetonka Beach can be found in its parks and trails. The Dakota Rail Trail, which stretches 26 miles, runs along the edge of the city. Ray Peters Park, Lafayette Park, Half Moon Park and Beach Park can be found in the center of the city, which is essentially surrounded by water. Many find their way to Hunting Park to watch the sunset over Lake Minnetonka.
