It's been a few months since I've gone on a phototour, so today I thought I'd explore the town of Waconia. It's a sleepy suburban town about an hour southwest of Minneapolis on Lake Waconia. What a cozy little place! I especially loved the little wooden-framed buildings downtown, which you don't see much of around here.

Waconia, Minnesota
Population: 10,697

Thank you again for showing smalltown America. You are one of my favourite posters.

Just one tiny request, could you please leave a little empty space between the pics?

Thanks for the nice comments, everyone!

good, is it a real suburb or a stand alone town? I hate suburbs, but they looks awesome for kids and old people
It's an 19th century town that in recent years has become suburban due to its proximity to Minneapolis/St. Paul, but there's still lots of lovely countryside and forests surrounding to keep it feeling rural.

Show me winter too! I envision loads of little ice houses and a script straight out of "Grumpy Old Men" :)
You should check out some of the other threads in my signature. The Minneapolis "Old St. Anthony" threads might give you a feel for our harsh Minnesota winters. I definitely do plan to do more winter threads once that time comes around again.

Sure thing, done and done. :)

I love threads like this!

While its good to see the threads of LA and Singapore and Paris etc etc. Its even better to see a place that Ive never heard of before. Brilliant pics of just a normal every day mid western town. I actually wanna go there now.

Im going to check out your other threads too. :banana2:

Thanks! I'm glad there are at least a few people on here who enjoy seeing smaller, lesser-known locations.

I feel like Minnesota (and small towns in general) are underrepresented here and I really enjoy exploring new places, so I figure I might as well take some photos while I'm at it!
