I really have enjoyed growing up in Monroe, NC. There is not much I would change. Maybe not growing as fast as it has. There is getting to be too many people. I guess it is growing because everyone wants to move here.

Monroe is a great town to live in. It has all the stores and restaurants needed, but isn't to large.
I really enjoy the area I live in because it is far enough from the city for privacy but close enough to get to a local grocery store, gas station, etc. The people who reside here keep up the appearance of their house and make sure to wave at everyone.
