    I love the local area because of the hospitality and friendliness. We have a really nice downtown area with amazing food and local shops. I would come back to live here but I would live outside the city limits if I did because I like the country over the small town/city atmosphere. This could be a better place compared to other places in the country because we have little to do for teenagers in the local area. I can see this area becoming more industrialized in the future because it is slowly becoming that way now.
