Superior is a wonderful small town that I have lived in my whole entire life. I grew up here and loved it! The City of Superior is working on bringing more buisnesses here so that residents and tourists continue to live and travel here to see the Great Lake Superior. I would love for this town to continue to go in the direction that it is so that families, tourism, and residents continue to travel and love living here.

I've lived here my whole life and wouldn't want to grow up any where else. The schools and the neighborhoods are great! I loved how in the elementary schools the class sizes are small compare to Duluth schools. My daughter got the attention she needed. I don't think she would have succeeded without it. The neighbor hoods are quiet and friendly. I am never afraid to walk around day or night. The only reason I didn't give Superior five stars is because of the weather, the winters are tortuous and there is a lack of spring and fall. It goes from summer to winter in the blink of an eye.
I have lived here my entire life. It may not be the best, brightest city in the Midwest, however the entire community is extremely enjoyable. The level of business I need Superior has decreased over the years as the population has slowly declined, but I seee great potential with the land and neighboring cities/towns that we regularly commute to and work with.
