Benson is a great place to live. There is a fine balance between living in the country but still being close to a "big city" that offers a variety of ways to stay entertained and connected. The people here are neighborly without being overly involved in your personal business.
I have lived here my whole life and I love it. The culture and surroundings are so welcoming.
