Monroe is America's Greatest Small Town! We have people of all walks of life that treat you like family wherever you go. You can find a heart-warming meal from sun up to sun down any day of the week! The shops are some of the most unique places I've ever seen with tons of local artists and vendors. We absolutely love living within walking distance to every spot downtown. Friday nights are spent playing trivia and Saturday nights are alive with bands and bars! Let me show you around my Monroe and I guarantee you won't regret it!

I moved to Monroe from a busy city looking for a more quiet and laid back lifestyle. I feel that is exactly what Monroe has given me, with the added extra of a small community feel. It has been an enjoyable experience and plan to stay here for another 10 years at least!
Monroe is quickly becoming a desirable place to be. While it has always had small town charm, we are finally getting interesting businesses like a new brew pub and other places to eat and gather downtown. The downtown itself is a vibrant place, and continues to grow as new businesses open. They host concerts on Fridays in the summer, and a great farmer's market on Summer Saturdays. I have raised my family there, and found the school system to be much better than I would have suspected.
