I like the small town community of Moose Lake. I like the variety of small shops and small town treasures such as the old movie theater, brewery, and coffee shop.

I've lived in moose lake and a neighboring town forany years. The people are always super friendly. There are many different community events that take place during the summer. I would like the city council to me more lenient on letting new business move in.
There are a few things to do in town, the people are friendly, but there is not a ton to do. We have a little movie theatre but it only plays one movie at a time.
