Bluffton is a close knit community with an encouraging atmosphere. The smallness provides the opportunity to develop close relationships with your neighbors and other members of the community. There are many public events held on main street that bring people together. All events are family friendly and provide a wonderful location to raise a family. There are various places for families to enjoy, including two parks, a public pool, and the local movie theater. The popcorn is amazing! The public school system provides a great place for children to learn and find good role models, as well as the numerous local churches of many different denominations. Bluffton is a fantastic community to reside in.

I have lived in Bluffton all my life and I have never had any problems here. I have gone to school here, worked here, and have been an active member in the community and I can say with all my heart that Bluffton is a wonderful place to raise a family. We are a small town but always seem to be growing in one aspect or another. Our town cares about what happens to its residents and wishes the best for them all.
