I would live in this area again. I know almost everyone in town, and I like the small town life. The rural area surrounding Hoopeston is also a good place to live. The only problem some people might see with living here is that you have to drive about 30 minutes to find a Walmart, or some food places. We do, however, have a bowling alley, skating rink, public pool, public library, several different churches, a grocery store, a few other stores, gas stations, and restaraunts.
Previously the subway was in the middle of town along with a few other stores. Now it has moved out near the high way making double the profit daily. While the stores in town are slowly dieing out. Personally there needs to be signs showing what stores are in town for businesses to have a better flow of people into their stores. Along with moving the hotel by the high way for people of big families and relatives to stay in. Along with people traveling far distances in order to visit family, friends, high school graduates, and the sweet corn festival that we have every year.
