I moved to Menomonie for safety reasons and to raise my family. Menomonie is a beautiful city surrounded by trees, nature and Lake Menomonie. We also have a big park with a lot of things to do including hiking, bike riding and enjoying the scenic nature. Menomonie is also great for students as we have the University of Wisconsin-Stout. It is very accessible to other small cities and we have a major intersection that runs through Menomonie making it easier to commute to work.
I don't venture out of Menomonie because we have most amenities that I need. Restaurants are plentiful but we could use more shopping options. The winters in Wisconsin are brutal so I usually work out at Snap Fitness. In the summer, I am able to workout at the park. The summers are mild and tolerable. We have several primary schools to choose from making Menomonie a very family friendly community. The people are friendly and the cost of living is not bad.
