Buena is a rural community with many farms. The schools are better than surrounding districts, but funding from the state and federal government is limited. Property taxes are high. Recreational activities are limited.
Review Buena
It is a very small, friendly town. The school systems are great, I've had an overall positive experience living here.
There isn't much to offer. Only a couple of Pizza shops, dollar stores, and other food places. Nothing out of the ordinary. I live by a major highway so it gets to be quite noisy.
