I grew up in Momence. While there is a lot for children and teenagers to do around here (e.g. Community and school sports, various family oriented activities), there is little for adults to do. There are a few restaurants and bars (one of which does have a bowling alley), there isn't much to do beyond that in town.

The people here are amazing, but I wish there was more shops and food options. The good thing is that we are just an easy drive away from Chicago.
Only because Momence is such a small town, there are very few employment opportunities. There are some opportunities in larger towns surrounding it but not too much more. The good thing is, Momence is located about an hour south of Chicago, where there are thousands of employment opportunities.
