I love the nature in and around Cloquet. There is a specific hiking trail near my house that I adore! Also, I feel very safe in Cloquet especially now with at least one cop on duty at my high school. However, with that being said, I believe the town could add some more spark and life into it. There is not a lot to do in Cloquet except shopping at Wal-Mart and taking walks. If Cloquet could add some fun things to do like a trampoline park (there is one in Duluth that is very popular), then more people would have the desire to visit and maybe even live here.

There isn't much to do in Cloquet. Especially for kids and teenagers. Overall, I would say that Cloquet is a fairly safe town. Although, every city, town, ect. has their problems. The cost of living here isn't expensive compared to huge cities like Minneapolis, NYC, and LA. However, most houses around here are overpriced for the amount of work that they need. The schools located in Cloquet are average at best.
Cloquet, MN is a lovely, family-oriented town that is dedicated to enriching the lives of all its residents via top-notch educational opportunities, varied and affordable community activities, and excellent healthcare facilities.
