The local businesses in the area are great! They are smaller businesses but do a better job then big corporate businesses. One example is B&H Lawncare. They are a small landscaping business but do a better quality job then the well known MLC landscaping business in our town.

There are many jobs in town for teens. I do not believe there are many job opportunities for adults in our community unless you want to work for Stoughton Trailers or Uniroyal.
Stoughton is known for its bars. There are plenty of Bars to go out to on weekends. We have a variety of fast food places and plenty of fine dining in the area.
