Du Quoin Reviews
Du Quoin is a close knit community with a lot of church and school options. Shopping is limited, but you can get all your basic needs here! The town is beautiful and the park feels safe! They have wonderful child care options that are affordable and the best part about Du Quoin is that everything is so close together! The library is near the park, with in walking distance actually! There are multiple food options from fast food to sit down family diners and every year we hold the Du Quoin State Fair which has amazing food, rides, and music! We also are trying out our very first back to school bash that will support local businesses. It is also home to Nubablility, a program that helps children with deformities learn to cope with their disability and the best part is, they teach them to play sports and show them they can do anything they put their mind to! All in all, Du Quoin is wonderful and I am proud to be a resident!
I like that I know almost everyone in this town. When we go to the grocery store I almost always see someone I know and I get to say hello! I feel a sense of community in this town. I do wish we had more local restaurants and cool activities for teenagers.
Du quoin is a very calm city to live in. It’s a small, quiet, and sleepy little place. There are several places to eat, but few opportunities for outings.
