Homes for Sale
Homes in this area come in a wide range of prices, styles, and sizes.
Where to Live
Small houses, ranch homes, and single-family dwellings are the norm in Brainerd, and the real estate prices are very reasonable and should be attractive to couples looking to settle down on a budget. There are a few empty lots in the neighborhood, but recent residential construction suggests the neighborhood's offerings for condominiums will be expanding in the near future.
Where to Eat
As most of the space in Brainerd is dedicated to residential dwellings, you may have to hunt to find a good spot for dining out. Those who do, however, will be rewarded with a few hidden gems. The fan of American fare has some prime options here, satisfying those seeking sandwiches and cheesesteaks of all types. The comforts of fried food and a plump steak can also be found in some small and unassuming corner establishments.
What You'll See
Brainerd has strong roots in diverse cultures as well as a history of housing working-class immigrants, and these influences are still reflected in a proud and hardworking population with a strong sense of where it came from and, just as importantly, where it’s going. This tight-knit community has worked hard through the neighborhood's economic fluctuations and is the best reason to expect the area to keep trending upward.
Friday Night Fun
Those looking for a raucous nightlife will want to go elsewhere; Brainerd is a quiet area and prefers its Friday nights to be peaceful. However, those who can appreciate a slower pace can enjoy an evening game from the stands at one of the local schools or wind down the week at one of the unassuming bars along Ashland Avenue or 95th St.
The Perfect Sunday
The vibrant community here is always eager to organize a neighborhood gathering, especially in Brainerd Park, a stretch of green that provides a great chance for children to play and adults to relax. It serves as an ideal landing ground for a picnic, whether it's a single family outing or a big bash that invites the entire block. There are also several stores along Ashland Avenue and 95th Street.
