living in this area is okay. There are restraunts and places to shop, you just have to drive 15 minutes down the road to actually find something. There's a mall in the next town over which is nice to go to if you do like shopping. There's a wide variety of stores, and isn't super packed with people, which I always found nice. There's another mall in the oppisite direction that was once the highlight of our area. Now there are only 3 stores in it and a movie theatre.. There isn't much to do in this area for fun. You really have to look hard to find something!
