Amber Reviews

We bought a house here last year, and I love raising my son here. There aren't many businesses, but the school is excellent. It's small town living, for sure! The commute to go to work, buy groceries, and find weekend activities and nightlife isn't a bad commute. It is a rural community, so there isn't a lot of cultural diversity. It's the type of place you'll get stuck driving behind a tractor during harvest time.
