About Savage - One of Best Places to Live in America

Best Places to Live RibbonSavage, located in Scott County, Minnesota, is distinguished by its convenient location, varied history, and lush surroundings.

Savage was named among the Best Places to Live in America by Money magazine in 2013 and among the Best Affordable Suburbs in the nation by BusinessWeek in 2010.

The community's oldest district sits on the banks of the Minnesota River. As the city has grown, development has occurred southward to settle on the bluffs overlooking the scenic Minnesota River Valley.

Perhaps known best for its ties to famous racehorse, Dan Patch, Savage is also regarded for its significant role in the grain distribution industry. Yet, it is not the history or the riverfront activity that tends to draw most people here. Many people say it was the community's beauty, its schools and its services that first caught their attention - and persuaded them to stay.
