Monroe and the surrounding area offer many beautiful parks and trails, an active arts community, distinctive retailers and diverse businesses, large and small.  Known as a great place to raise a family, the area features a low cost of living with affordable housing options.  Local public and religiously affiliated schools are highly rated, and there are several quality, affordable preschools and child care facilities in the area.
        
Downtown Monroe features a bustling town square where residents and visitors regularly gather to enjoy outdoor concerts, farmers' markets, and community festivals.  While it offers the best of small town living, events such as Cheese Days and well-known breweries and restaurants draw visitors from all over the globe.  Whether you like to work out at the YMCA, golf well-kept greens, bike with your family on the Sugar River Trail, snowshoe in New Glarus Woods State Park, or check out favorite fishing and hunting areas, you find plenty of recreational options year round.  

Like most small communities in southern Wisconsin, Monroe is known for its safety, friendliness and cleanliness. Our fresh air and neighborly streets invite quiet evening strolls comparable to nothing urban settings have to offer.
