Crookston Reviews

I absolutely love Crookston! They do not have much here, besides Wal-Mart, Hugo's, McDonald's, and a couple other restaurants, but since I am a college student, that is kind of a good thing. I need to be saving up my money so that I can pay for school, and living in Crookston has really enhanced that.

Growing up in Crookston I always thought that it wasn't a good town to grown up in but thinking about it know it is because you get to know so many different people because the town is small so you know who you are graduating with and the people in the grades above and below you. You really get to know your neighbors and become close to them and if you have family who lives in town and you go see them you get to know their neighbors as well if you don't already know them. If you wanted to hangout with your friends it was only like a 5 minute drive to their house because it was a small town which made it nice when you got older and you could start walking/biking/rollerbladding over there.
Ok place to live. College town with a few bars. Medical and manufacturing jobs available. Not the most exciting place to be.
