It's a great country locale, but further than I'd like to be to get things that I need on a day-to-day basis. Other than that, it is beautiful!

A small town with a lot heart. Great place to live and raise a family. Great public school. Overall, a great place to live.
its a small and cute town, overall quiet and super safe. only downsides are that its full of uppity white people and most people are super racist
