I have lived in Monroe my entire life and I couldn't be happier. I have all of my family here, friends, and absolutely friendly and familiar faces. I had a fairly average childhood. I would still consider it a small town, but it has got everything a person needs. And can not forget the downtown historical square! Lots of small businesses and local bars. The only downside I have seen is the drug and gang presents.

Monroe is a charming town, welcoming and friendly! The people are warm and cheerful, and the countryside is gorgeous. From walking trails to Cheese-factory tours, Monroe offers multiple tourist attractions. Kids love the large parks and dozens of activities available throughout the summer. Take a stroll through the historic downtown square and enjoy the classical music playing from the courthouse.
4 stars because the schools are very clicky and there’s no Wendy’s in town. We do have Cheesedays which is a lot of fun but it’s very crowded. There’s also the square which has a lot of cool shops....from boutiques to sweet treats and lots of others. We like taking the kids to Rainbow Confections for their flavored popcorn and multitude of candies. The Garden Deli has great sandwiches and THE BEST EGG SALAD!
