Menomonie is a small town with an estimated population of over 16,000 residents. This town is situated around Lake Menomin, which makes for beautiful sceneries. Although Lake Menomin is a pretty view, it's polluted and residents can catch sicknesses from the on going algae growth from the water. There's also lots of fast food places located around Menomonie, but there are several restaurants for healthier eating. The publics schools are great, mostly including Oaklawn Elementary. Overall Menomonie a wonderful place to visit. Stout University is right in the center of downtown, so there's lots of students out and about at night. This makes Menomonie a social area and more full with people. You might even bump into a few exchange students. The diversity is always a good thing to see.

We love Menomonie! It is conveniently close to the Twin Cities, yet has that small town charm. Menomonie offers much to do for the outdoor enthusiast, with extensive trails, Hoffman Hills for hiking, Tripp Falls, Devils Punchbowl and much more! Enjoy a fun performance at the historic Mabel Tainter Theater downtown and browse the fun antique and boutique shops offered. UW-Stout keeps Menomonie young and fresh and Mayo Clinic in Menomonie provides excellent healthcare. Come experience the wonderful city of Menomonie yourself! I promise you will not be disappointed!
The whole town is very student focused. Unfortunately that means poor rental options and a lot of bars filled with 21-year-olds. It's a decent place for a short period of time, but overall there isn't much to do here.
