Shopping is one of the best things to do in Monument. The town is home to some of the best local boutiques and shops in the whole state. Monument is mostly made up of smaller businesses rather than bigger, well-known retail stores. Because of this, Monument’s shopping scene always stays fresh and local, creating an even bigger passion for shopping in the community. Here are a few great places to check out.
