In my personal experience, I enjoy living in Beardstown, it is one of the only small towns in Illinois that has such a mix of cultures. And I really appreciate sharing similarities and differences with other cultures. Even though Beardstown is a small town, It has a pretty decent school district, with many opportunities for everyone. I also think that Beardstown has a lot of activities throughout the year, as a Mexican, the town makes a big cultural festival for important cultural dates for Hispanics.
What I like about Beardstown is the diversity. The town has an elementary school, a high school, and a community college. The cost of living is low and worth it. There are many public parks where various events take place throughout the year, which includes Fourth of July, Cinco de Mayo celebrations, and the Fall Fun Festival. This town is very safe and quiet. During the night people can safely walk through the streets with the streetlights turned on. There are many trees planted throughout the town, which makes it environmental friendly and healthy living for the citizens. The town is small, but big enough for job opportunities. JBS, one of the biggest meat-packing plants is located here. The Lincoln Courthouse is one of the biggest tourist attractions in town. Overall, my rating of this town is five star.
It has a lot of diversity. I want to leave, however, because there's not enough opportunity. There are a lot of people who do drugs, and don't get in trouble for it. Depending on where you live, of course, safety is good.
