Roseville is a city in Ramsey County, Minnesota, just north of Saint Paul and east of Minneapolis. It is one of two Twin Cities suburbs geographically adjacent to both Saint Paul and Minneapolis (the other is Lauderdale). The land comprising Falcon Heights, Lauderdale, and the southern area of Roseville was part of Saint Paul until 1948 when these towns incorporated.[citation needed]

Property taxes are some of the lowest in the Twin Cities, in part due to the extensive commercially-zoned land.[3] Several major shopping centers are located in Roseville, including Rosedale Center and the Har Mar Mall. The city's per capita retail spending is slightly higher than the city of Bloomington (home of the Mall of America), and has the greatest number of restaurants per capita in the Twin Cities.

Roseville is the location of the first Target store, built in 1962 and replaced in 2005 with a SuperTarget; the first Best Buy store (originally called Sound of Music); the first Barnes & Noble bookstore outside New York City; and the first McDonald's and Dairy Queen restaurants in the state of Minnesota. The Dairy Queen is currently on the Preservation Alliance of Minnesota's 10 Most Endangered Historic Places[4].

Roseville is also home to the John Rose Oval, North America┬┤s largest outdoor artificial sheet of ice. The 1995 men's Bandy World Championship and the 2006 women's Bandy World Championship were held here. The fifth largest board game publisher in the world, Fantasy Flight Games, is based in Roseville. Roseville Visitors Association the Official Visitors Site for Roseville MN, Old Dutch Foods, the Minnesota Department of Transportation, the Minnesota Department of Education, and the Minnesota State Lottery are headquartered in Roseville.

Roseville's population was 33,690 at the 2000 census.

The city is the hometown of MacGyver and Stargate SG-1 star Richard Dean Anderson, WKRP in Cincinnati star Loni Anderson (no relation), Six Feet Under and Dirty Sexy Money star Peter Krause.
