    Very nice small town located in northern Wisconsin. Great for outdoor activities. It's a place to relax stress free.
    Review Arbor Vitae
    Though I completely disagree with the U.S President, it is a shame that my local area has to suffer. The taxes are too high and that is also due to the fact that I am in a tourist area. We do have community care but they are very restricted due to the U.S President and legislation which is driving some of our elderly to seek other methods of care and to worry about local taxes.
    There are no buses or trains that are used for travel due to the fact that we are not a large city or anything. However, there are plenty of roads and proper direction to get in and out of town. Residents are very close to schools and as well as medical care and can easily walk/bike/drive a short amount of distance to reach these areas.
