    Coming from up North, I never thought I'd live in a small town. Living in Bastrop, Louisiana has its pros and its cons. First, Bastrop is extremely small and has old fashioned stores, exhibiting buildings that are depicted in western movies despite the fact that the town is in the South. The crime rate in Bastrop is mediocre, some would say stay in your home at night. There's not much entertainment in Bastrop, or at least not for children. Overall, Bastrop is a little town in the South that has its ups and downs like every other place.
    So far, crime has been slowly decreasing.
    This is my home, but its more of a retirement town.
