Just east of St. Paul, Woodbury is a prime location for commuting to work or to the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. It offers the feeling of a mid-sized community that’s not too small nor too large within reasonable distance of the Twin Cities. A local favorite is Woodbury Lakes, an outdoor shopping mall with over 55 national and local stores and pristine landscaping and architecture. Woodbury offers its residents access to lovely restaurants, the Woodbury Community Theatre and the Vali-Hi Drive In Theatre just a short drive to the north. Locally owned Keys Cafe & Bakery is a favorite for many in the Twin Cities, serving up breakfast, lunch, dinner and signature desserts. The local-first attitude of Woodbury is easy to see in its choice of shops, including Woodlane Flowers, a local business since 1978.
