Overview of Waconia

Located 30 miles west of the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Waconia is a semi-rural but growing exurban community. Home to around 10,700 people, Waconia has experienced dramatic population growth in the last 10 years. Between 2000 and 2010, its population grew 57 percent. Waconia gets its namesake from beautiful Lake Waconia, on the banks of which the city proudly sits. This small city is also a family-friendly community, as 70.3 percent of Waconia households are comprised of families.

Waconia's history is marked by struggle. The area's first European settlers arrived from Germany in 1857 and began establishing a community based on a monetary relationship with the local Native Americans. In 1862, a lean harvest and the onslaught of the Civil War meant tough times for poor settlers and Native Americans alike. The "Sioux Uprising" began in the area, leading to conflict among what had previously been cooperating groups. Many European settlers fled to what is now called Coney Island, while others remained locked in battle. The Dakota and the European settlers both sustained losses, and by the end of the fight the Dakota were forced to leave the area. As peace returned to the country, Waconia began to grow.

Until recently, Waconia has been a small town on the fringes of the Twin Cities area, but as the metropolitan area population has increased, suburbanization has come to Waconia. Those searching for Waconia apartments for rent will delight in the area's small-town feel.

Living in Waconia, MN

Waconia residents enjoy many traditional Minnesota pastimes, especially water and ice sports. Lake Waconia offers residents the chance to fish, skate, play hockey and swim, making the area a kid-friendly and fun place to call home. The lake is the second largest in the Twin Cities metro area at 3,080 acres.

Residents love Waconia for its small-town vibe, which contributes to a strong sense of local community. Nickle Dickle Day, hosted by the city's chamber of commerce, is just one example of an event that contributes to residents' sense of community. Featuring more than 100 craft vendors, races, a car and tractor show, and more, kids and adults alike make fond memories at this nostalgic event.

Other community celebrations include Puddle Jumper events, composting events and numerous holiday festivities.
