Beautiful Small town! The people are extremely friendly. There is no crazy hustle and bustle like the big cities. It is a wonderful place to raise your children.
Review Black River Falls
There's nothing to do here, you have to drive an hour away to do anything fun. However, there have recently been new buildings added (such as the new Lunda Community Center), and the high school was renovated, so it's not as bad as it used to be.
I have lived here all my life, it has a neat hometown feeling. I wish there were more shops for out of towners. It is hard to get businesses to come and stay in BRF. The festivals have always brought in a nice crowd and enjoyed by all.
