There are only three "restaurants" in the area I live in, two pizza joints and a Italian restaurant. The Italian restaurant is great and definitely makes up for the lack of good places to eat. My favorite dishes from there are their New England clam chowder and their chicken broccoli alfredo. There are no bars or nightlife in then area.
Review Brimfield
In the area I live in most people have to commute a good amount of time to their jobs. The only jobs that MAY be open that are in a 20 minute radius of where you live are gas stations, postal offices, schools, some restaurants and few retail shops. Considering I want to pursue a future in the performing arts I really have no choice but to move once I finished college because of the lack of jobs I would have.
Considering I live in a log cabin in the middle of the woods, you could say I love nature. Growing up going on nature walks and playing in the woods was my favorite thing to do. There are many hiking trails and lakes that can ensure you a great day. Even though pollution isn't really all that bad in my area I still am cautious about it and do my part of recycling and keeping the wilderness clean.
