Crime & Safety
As noted, the town is a small one. Due to this there are familiar faces, meaning a gift of having more trustworthy employers and employees. One could get a job at the body shop, car washes, gas stations, grocery, salon. It all depends on if you can creatively find work here. As a high school graduate, the jobs will range mostly in the minimum wage, which is to be expected. As for the job outlook, it doesn't seem to harbor an increase or decrease in opportunities. The best bet here is probably to find a job at the local drugstore or family-owned business.
In all honesty, there is not much variety. It is mostly comprised of fast food joints, two Mexican restaurants side-by-side (almost literally), a chicken wings joint and a Southern food restaurant comes to mind. Otherwise, there isn't really anything at all else to choose from. While having a homey feel, there lacks a variety and a GOOD, nutritious quality to the foods. Although, it is kind of cool to have dinner specials named after the town that everyone shares and enjoys.
My only complaint is that there isn't more or closer shopping. We have one grocery store, and the next closer being 20 minutes away, with Walmart being the closest department store at 30 minutes. But all in all, its a nice place to live, with plenty of close attractions to enjoy with the family.
