Everyone's really nice. Great community and some pretty good places to eat. You don't have to worry about crime unless it's someone from a neighboring town.

Small town. Not very diverse. Not too many shopping areas. Everyone knows everyone. The public school is amazing however! That alone is good enough to stay!!
I like where I live. I love to have more things to do there. Also, it would be great to have more restaurants in the area.
