Come home to Scott
Scott’s growth over the last few decades proves that big ideas and rock-solid neighbors form the strong backbone of a thriving community. Some of us have lived here for generations on a family farm and others are buying their first home here for a change from bigger-city living. Small-town vibes jive with a growing economy, vibrant entrepreneurial spirit, and cornerstone employers such as St. Francis Regional Medical Center, Amazon, CHS, and Valleyfair.
All the Activities
Scott mixes small-town energy with big-city amenities. Nature lovers can get lost amongst grasslands and hiking trails or reel one in with their kids on Prior Lake. Thrill-seekers know Valleyfair and Canterbury Park will fit the bill. Culture vultures are all about Jordan Supper Club for dinner and hit up Mystic Lake for a top-tier concert or try their hand with Lady Luck. It’s just a matter of finding time to get to it all.
We collaborate with Scott County communities and Chambers of Commerce to pull together a master calendar of events all around Scott. Bookmark it to check-in and never miss a thing! Got something cool to do or see? Submit your events for us to post, too.
Over the years—especially in the previous decade or so—our communities have grown leaps and bounds and we’re proud of how we come together to celebrate, collaborate, and create a well-loved place to call home. We’ve gathered up a few of our great places, so please, make yourself at home.
The Scott County Volunteer Program is a county resource that can help you connect to opportunities that make our home an even better place to live. Heck, they will even help you find the right people for an event you want to host, too. Learn about this resource and more below.
We want to feature all the 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! Drop us a line to nominate your favorite Scott things with us!
