The good life is right here. You should be, too!

On a map, Greater St. Cloud looks like a group of Central Minnesota communities with the Mississippi River meandering through, somewhere between the bright lights of Minneapolis and the starry nights of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area.

Sure, we’re that. But that’s just geography.

We’re also the regional center for commerce, healthcare, arts, entertainment, and education. We’re bustling downtowns, major businesses, and good jobs.

We’re tranquil, diverse neighborhoods, with a cost of living well below that of urban settings. But when urban is what you want, we’re only about an hour from everything the Twin Cities has to offer.

We’re major college hockey and town-team baseball. We’re parks and trails alongside our share of the state’s 10,000 sky-blue lakes, all perfect for four-season recreation.

But what we may not be, yet, is your home. So click on the city and county links below to discover more about the individual communities that make up Greater St. Cloud. And then join us, because the good life is right here.


Community engagement makes us even better   

The residents of Greater St. Cloud share more than geographic proximity, we share beliefs in what’s important to make this region even better. One way we do that is through the Greater St. Cloud Community Pillars Forum, an annual gathering of hundreds of area residents and businesses who work to advance priorities related to arts and entertainment, community engagement, the economy, education, “green” considerations, housing, infrastructure, safety, and wellness. We invite you to help make us even stronger.
