Argo has that small town feel!! There are a couple of convenience stores and a really good farmers market/nursery for local veggies and plants! Big stores and shopping,restaurants,and groceries are only a few miles away. Crime levels are one of the lowest in the state. Argo is very close to the interstate for convenience!!!

we LOVE this community! We bought our first home here and are looking at building our forever home here.
This is a small city, so we go elsewhere to get our major groceries and do our shopping. There are multiple family hardware and fast stations that are convenient.
