Boone County is such a not a little place but its not a big place either. There is a lot to do around Boone County! The best places are our Florence Fundome, Florence Mall, and all our places to eat!

Everything is growing and becoming widespread. The community is opening new businesses and hopefully the roads will start to improve with all the traffic. Traffic is the downfall to having things in such a close area as you live. The housing seems to very reasonable in comparison to other cites. Mount Zion road is the only area that is completely behind in expansion and very dangerous to drive. They have been doing construction on and off for years with no change at all. This is putting a damper on the city and its growth.
It is a nice place for families. The school district is really good. However, this is not a lot of diversity. Also, there is not much to do.
