Considered a small agriculture town, it is easy to loss yourself in the elegant sweep the areas rolling emerald hills. Between the corn, cows, and sunflowers, your eye is never at bored with the innumerable wonders of nature. I must give warning to the fact that it holds consistent to ALL things small-town; there are individual (and sometimes loud) prejudices, as well as the most open-hearted/-mind you'll find.
Review Broadway
Broadway is a small town that lets you live large. The town is quaint and old; the parks are lovely; the mountains are breathtaking. The people - well, you won't forget them. I remember going to the library and checking out a book; but rather than getting rushed through checkout, I spent the next thirty minutes discussing college options and getting some sound advice from the librarian, a sweet lady who could have been my grandmother. I worked in town, sometimes at the weekly farmers' market, and now everywhere I go I will see people that I know - and that know me. It's the epitome of a small town, and while I also love the faster pace of big cities, it's a place that is easy to call home.
I have lived in Broadway for roughly a decade now and I have loved the atmosphere this town produces. The people are kind-hearted souls who want to help their neighbors and will do with little to no delay. It truly is Smalltown, U.S.A. and I could not ask for a better place to live.
