It's an average little town. The education system is decent enough and the community is just as average. Everything is average. The people consist of conservatives and the few die-hard liberals. Job opportunities are scarce and require extreme drive to land one. The restaurants are average, run-of-the-mill restaurants.

Clay county has gorgeous neighborhoods. The neighbors are friendly and they welcome you with open arms. The community center has a nice sized pool and a gym. They have activities like movie night and ice cream social at the pool so perfect for the kids to have fun.
I like how nice and friendly the people in Clay County are. Basically everyone knows everyone. I would love to see though is trash being picked up from the streets and grass so we could keep our environment clean and healthy.
