#33. Northfield

Students at Carleton and St. Olaf colleges help lower the median age in Northfield to 27, but this city attracts many families and young professionals. The Northfield Public Schools district is well respected, and residents have access to 35 parks along with a long-standing Northfield Hospital. Many downtown buildings have been preserved and are prime examples of late 19th and early 20th century architecture.
