A lot of people in this area of southeast Ohio are very close-minded. That was okay for me growing up, but now that I've seen the world through college, it's not okay with me anymore. It's a great place to raise children, but those children will out of here as soon as they can. It's a boring place for young adults.

Chain restaurants or local businesses. Either way, it's very affordable but generally a small variety
Everything is so far away from everything else. Unless you live downtown, it's a 20 minutes commute to most places by car
