Morris is a small town and is sort of in the middle of no where. However, it is the perfect place to escape a busy city life. The town has everything you could need, including a University with a work out center open to the public. It also has a grocery store that has a very welcoming atmosphere and many small restaurants and diners to eat at.

Morris is a small town in West Central Minnesota. No major highways or interstate goes through Morris keeping safety higher in my opinion. The public school is underfunded and finally being updated, but staff pushes kids to achieve greatness. Agriculture, Westmor/Superior and the University of Minnesota Morris all drive the local economy. The university keeps fresh faces in the community and Westmor/Superior and agriculture are always there to provide jobs.
Morris is a rather uneventful place, but their are hidden gems everywhere. Following the bike path, you can find a beautiful horticulture gardens with walking paths and a playground. My favorite part of Morris is Don's cafe. Don's won "The Best Grilled Cheese in Minnesota" award, but all their food their is award worthy.
