    I say its only ok, because as a town for generations born after 1985, your economic mobility along with gaining substantial employment is low/hard. However, as a getaway, canadensis serves as a wonderful place to seclude yourself from bustling life.
    Never had any issues with local business, but it isn't an outstanding experience either. I understand that people have bad days and people have good days, so even a single sour experience doesn't ruin a business for me.
    Very good entry-level restaurants in this area, the food is good in just about every one of them!
