My overall experience in Aberdeen hasn't been the greatest. This is my hometown, however, I notice there's not enough things for our young community to do. On the other hand, this community is very friendly and quiet place for families to enjoy their lives. This county mainly focuses their attention on the "rich retirement" group. Which isn't fair for those who are young and need guidance in life. Although we do have programs such as the Boys & Girls Club, I feel like we need more than just one program for our youth.

Town is very spread out and only the downtown good for walking . There are lots of great opportunities for community service, cultural events and social gatherings. The cost of living is low.
Small town but has most things you look for day to day. There are many options for grocery shopping, large retail stores and restaurants, and all the everyday services. Close to several small parks and small family outdoor activities, and only 1-2 hours from much larger cities and events.
