Cannon Falls is a very small farm town. We have a huge sense of community and it is a fun place to live. It could definitely use another good restaurant and competitive pricing for the grocery store. The school system is very good and offers a lot of extra curricular activities. There are a number of nice parks and plenty of areas to get exercise in. Overall, it is an amazing community to live in.

everyone in the town knows each other well, they have good places to go to when you need to eat they have different restaurants and a really good cafe, beautiful places to hang out. The new ice cream shop is good and has good business, there are different parks you can go to, going down the river is really fun.
Cannon Falls is a beautiful area to live in right on the Cannon river with many natural sights to see. A great small town feel but less than an hour away from the MN metro area.
