Small town. Nice people. Great town for families. Not far from surrounding towns which provide plenty to do during down time. Joplin, Missouri is roughly an hour away.

Low population, quiet area, not necessarily the place I'd like to settle down at, but due to low crime rates everything is very relaxed
Low crime rate so the need for constant numbers on law enforcement isn't needed
