Becker is just an overall nice city to be in because it feels safe and is fairly close to bigger cities such as Monticello and Elk River. One downside is the lack of stores within the city and lack of entertainment.
Review Becker
Employment opportunites in the area are practically nonexistent, unless you have a close relative or friend willing to hire you.
The people aren't the nicest here, if you're new in town you're mostly ignored.
