Rexburg. Beautiful, fun, stereotypical Rexburg.
The place where potato farms surround the town and businesses thrive off college students. Where you’ll find some of the most beautiful scenic views of mountains, rivers, forests, and lakes.
Rexburg can be pretty funny when you think about what makes this special town so unique. If you live in Rexburg, you are probably guilty of at least one (but most likely more) of these things. Here is a list of stereotypes that you have probably seen or done while living in Rexburg.
You know you live in Rexburg when…
Too many guys are growing the creeper mustache

A first date is at FatCats
You go to restaurants for the FHE special
You’ve hammock-ed at Porter Park
You’ve rented a puppy
You have taken a weekend trip to Utah
Driving 10 minutes is too far
You’ve illegally thrown a snowball
You’ve swiped on mutual
The big night out is in Idaho Falls
You’re an hour away from some of the best skiing in the world but you can’t go because, no car
Walmart is not 24 hours
Your grade is highly attendance-based
You can get fined for texting while walking through a crosswalk
