With small-town living and fast access to the outdoors, the Iron Range of Northeastern Minnesota supports real work-life balance.The reality the Range existence is: life is simpler. We don’t have traffic. If you have been in the car for 1.5 hours, you have likely traveled 75 miles. If you have two people ahead of you in line at the grocery store, you are experiencing rush hour (or someone has called in sick and the grocery store is short staffed).
No, we don’t have all the chain stores. But we have what we need, and we save money because of the lower cost of living and a penchant for entertainment that doesn’t have high ticket prices (like ATV, hiking, fishing, mountain biking…). Imagine jumping on your mountain bike or ATV from your garage and riding it to a trail minutes from your driveway?
