This is a great little town for visiting with family or friends or making new friends! There are lakes, parks, and shopping. The Eagle Ridge Mall is close by. They also have consignment shops and fishing.

It's very boring. There is not really anything to do. And there are no kids around.
Small town, should consider having more shops closer as there is a university located right in the middle of the town. All shopping must be done 5 miles away. Not all students have cars are some are international students. There is only one small convenient store but they barely carry any important products and the prices are ridiculous. Definitely no consideration for the the university residents. However, it is small, quiet and safe location.
