I love living in River Falls! It is a very family friendly place and very community centered. The schools are excellent. It is close enough to larger cities to have bigger opportunities but far away enough to have a nice private, small town feeling. The hospital isn't great but the other public services are.

What I would tell others what I like about River Falls would be, first and foremost I grew up in River Falls and what I liked most about River Falls is the sense of community! From baseball games at our local stadium, home football games on a Friday night, every one is there support a athlete or just present because the football game is where everyone is at on a friday night. The next thing I would tell someone that I liked best about River Falls is how everyone excepts everyone from the local banker to the collage student working at either quick trip on either end of the town!
I have lived in River Falls for 9 years now and it has treated me well. It is a relatively small town, but there are still things to do. It is a college town which means the streets are usually filled. My favorite spot in River Falls is the Fall Theater. It is a small theater that is family-run. They have been able to keep the prices low. I am never disappointed by the experiences I have there. The people here are serious about pride. The high school sports teams are very successful and the students are very supportive.
