Minong Town Reviews

In northern Wisconsin the weather can be quite disastrous. We have all four season, with Winter being the worst season. They are long and cold, sometimes our vehicles will refuse to start. The summers are hot and humid, with the thunderstorms violent and windy, knocking down many trees and rooftops. On average we have about 2 massive storms per year, with fatalities. Our wardrobes include heavy jackets and pants, big boots, gloves. basically all the essential winter gear for the terrible blizzards we witness each year.

Well, Minong Wisconsin is a very low population town. The population is at an all time high of 527 people. However, Minong is home to the the largest beef jerky company in the world, Jack Link's. The nearest Wal-Mart is about 30 minutes away in a neighboring town, Hayward WI. The only fast food establishment is A&W. There isn't much in Minong, a few bars, a post office and no retail stores. So if you need anything of importance your best option is to drive an hour northeast to Duluth MN where you get all of your basic needs met.
There are only about 3 bars in town and they only serve alcohol and bar food. Also there is one fast food establishment. No variety in food or specials, except the occasional bloody Mary night at the lookout.
