I have been meaning to write a post for my own website that gives all the information for the Zimmerman area, and as long as I am putting it on my website, I thought I would share it here for my sphere, too.
Zimmerman is a great town, and it has so much to offer in sights and amenities.
If you haven’t visited lately, you will be surprised at our growth. And, we still maintain that Wild West flavor….or Up North flavor, if you will.
Here is some of the great information that the City has posted on the Sherburne County website!
