Hi! We’re Scott.

Scott County is one of Minnesota’s best-kept secrets. When you have great housing, fantastic entertainment—let’s face it, can you beat the excitement of a run at a Blackjack table or the stomach-flip of the Corkscrew?—economic growth, and a community that cares about their neighbors, why would you live, work, or play anywhere else?

Virtual Hangouts

No matter if you are currently in the job market or ready to nourish your network, it’s all about who you know. Scott’s collaborated with organizations around the county to bring together resources that help you meet new people, ask up-front questions about the job search, maybe even give a hand in landing the job. Start your next-level network by exploring virtual hangouts.


Scott Spotlight

We feature people, places, and things that make Scott stand out, whether it’s the best barista who always gets your coffee order just right, a little-known hiking trail with scenic views, or the best menu item at your favorite diner. In other words, don’t let our hidden gems be hidden! You can also share your best Scott secrets with the community by nominating your favorite Scott things with us.


What's Happening

We collaborate with the Chambers of Commerce throughout the county as well as the county library resources, faith communities, and employers to pull together a master calendar of events all around Scott. Bookmark it to never miss a thing! Got something cool to do or see? Submit your events for us to post, too.
