    This tiny town is growing into a charming little city. It has locally owned businesses, such as, cafes, bakeries, grocery stores, car lots etc. This town has been my home since early 1997. It has grown up quite a bit. However; it still has that tiny hometown feel. Everyone knows everyone and it is a great place to raise a family.
    This is one of the best areas to live because it has the small town feeling, but it is close to a big town. It is very safe and there are many good public schools around as well as good private schools if that is what you are interested in. The housing is perfect for families because they are close enough to other houses to feel safe, but at the same time there is plenty of open areas for children to play. The city is close enough to where it is a five minute drive to grocery stores and pharmacys. In addition, there are many good hospitals around so that if there is an emergency there is a lot of help anywhere that you turn.
    I honestly see individuals doing their own small businesses just to make it in this world financially.
