Overview of Blaine

According to City-Data, Blaine, Minn., grew in population by 27.2 percent between 2000 and 2010. Now home to approximately 57, 200 residents, this growing Twin Cities suburb has become a great place to live for those looking for a further-out metro location. Located about 20 miles north of Minneapolis, this semi-rural city has seen significant growth over the past half-century.

Those searching for Blaine apartments for rent will love the city's family-friendly, semi-rural vibe and established neighborhoods. It doesn't hurt that the Twin Cities are just a stone's throw away, making them perfect options for day trips or weekend excursions.

Blaine was part of Anoka, Minn., until 1877. Though surrounding areas gave way to farmland, Blaine's wetlands made it inhospitable for farming, and its growth was slow until after World War II when suburban living became fashionable. Between 1950 and 1970, Blaine's population skyrocketed, giving the city many of the mid-century homes it still enjoys today.
