The town is very small with very little to no places to shop. At times, it is a close knit community. I would like to see more festivities that get families outside, more than Glencoe Days. I would like to see more shops and a Kwik Trip would be great!

I love the small town friendly atmosphere of Glencoe. I feel safe and comfortable here! I love that the community is growing but also staying "small town".
Small town, so not much of a night life, but friendly and safe. Great place to raise a family. Has one of the lowest crime rates in Minnesota. You get to know quite a bit of people. Education is pretty good and there is an option for both the public and private sector. Town provides opportunities for healthy living.
