I love how many things there are to do in Arnold including roller-skating, swimming, going to the recreational center and/or library, going to the mall, etc...Name it and we probably have it! In addition, it's the perfect size. It's not too big to be crowded, but not too small to where there are no activity or eating options. Also, the area is kept nice and you won't find much crime or broken down areas.
Review Arnold
I was born in Arnold and grew up running around its streets. What I like most about it is that it is a small town, though its businesses and attractions are that of the city such as Arnold days, Fourth of July Celebration and their Farmer's Market every Saturday morning, as well as the tailgate sales. Many of these events have become apart of my family tradition, a tradition that I fully intend to share with my kids. Arnold, with all of its restaurants and events, gives me the feeling of community. I felt it as a kid and I still feel it.
While the sales tax is quite high in this town, it's quite safe and has grown exponentially within the past 10-15 years. In the 90's and early 2000's, it was all highway and fields. Now, you can't drive down the road without seeing churches, grocery stores, gas stations, restaurants and the like.
