    I live in a rural area with mostly farms, but there are a number of stand-alone homes as well. Most people have large lawns surrounded by trees. People like to have their own private space, yet most people are quite friendly. Most homes are in the woods and hidden at least partially from view.
    Review Bristol
    People like having their own space, but that isn't to say that they are not friendly. There are community gatherings in the park all the time. This area is very pet friendly. Most people live here for a long time. There are a number of retirees.
    Our highway dept is great. They do a good job of cleaning up the snow in the winter and fixing the roads in the summer. There is a very nice public park with a track, tennis courts, playground, and pavilions.
