I think that Avon is a great town. It is small but there are many friendly people and just the right amount of businesses. One thing I would like to see change in Avon is the lack of a public library. I think it would be great for the town to have a public library.

Some of the restaurants are pretty good. Afterall, it's food isn't it?
Most local businesses are not too bad. I think the area is growing economically.
