I like that it is a small town, population of less than 10, 000 people. The town and outlying communities are very laid back and quiet. There is a community garden lot for growing food crops. It's country, lots of trees and lakes and the Tenn-Tom Waterway. The town has a nice downtown park with benches, tables, a stage, and a new splashpad for little kids. McAlpine Lake offers a nice spot to fish and feed ducks and geese in town. There are two golf courses and numerous ball fields. The crime rate is low. However, the town has been advertised as a great retirement town. You can tell. The local skating rink and a couple of small playgrounds are the only places for older kids and teenagers to go hang out. The town no longer has a movie theater or a public swimming pool. Unless you are into playing sports or fishing, there is no place to go have fun. Luckily, it isn't too far from some larger towns which have more to choose from. Still, all in all, I like our small town.
