West Monroe Reviews
West Monroe is a great community! It is inside Ouachita Parish, which contains many excelling schools with great teachers. The community atmosphere is fairly conservative in both politics and religion. I do wish that I felt safer in this town, as the city of Monroe, which is just across the bridge, has a very high crime rate.
West Monroe is an average town, it populous consists primarily of undereducated blue-collar workers. High School is often the glory days of many of the residents who choose to reside here after their 20s. People literally go tailgating at the local high school's football games lol. West Monroe is good for someone who wants to live in a bigger town than one with a Piggly Wiggly but smaller than one with a Whole Foods. Hunting is the primary sport here and the majority of the citizens care more about their guns than their legs. But it could always be worse.
West Monroe is a great town to raise children in, in fact that is what it's known for. However, if you want to get out there and do something different this is not the town for you. It has great schools, and it is a great town for anyone who loves the outdoors. It is inhabited by overall pretty good people. The neighboring city of Monroe also gives more fun opportunities. I have enjoyed living here, but I do not know if I will live here forever.
