Roseville MN (Minnesota) is proud of the fact that it’s ‘Perfectly Positioned’ for a visit to Minneapolis and St Paul and I would have to agree!  It’s the only town to border both of the cities to the North and is located just off the I-35W giving quick access to many places in the Twin Cities!  Roseville dates back to the mid 1800’s and holds a few crazy USA ‘firsts’, it was home to the very first Target store in America and the first McDonald’s in Minnesota!
