Excelsior Real Estate
History is important in Excelsior; it was founded in 1853 by colonists from New York. Blending old and new, its small downtown and historic ambiance sets Excelsior apart from other suburban communities.
Only 20 minutes from downtown Minneapolis, Excelsior is a one-square-mile area with a population of 2,397, nestled on the shores of Lake Minnetonka. “The Minnehaha”, a recently restored steamboat which takes passengers round trip from Excelsior to Wayzata, and a restored streetcar and museum, preserve part of the City’s history.
Antique shops, a variety of specialty shops, restaurants, a theater, and a bed-and-breakfast inn make this “small town”; a fun place to live. There are family-friendly features in Excelsior in The Commons, a park and recreation area with a swimming beach, playground, tennis courts, baseball diamonds, and picnicking and The Southwest Regional Light Rail Transit Trail, enjoyed by many bicyclists and walkers.
A strong and vibrant community, Excelsior offers a number of community events, which are sponsored by the South Lake-Excelsior Area Chamber of Commerce. Thousands of visitors come to Excelsior each year to attend the Art in the Park, 4th of July Festivities, and Apple Day in the fall. Life is good in Excelsior.
