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.
