Living in Schuyler is a unique opportunity, as you can enjoy an urban setting, while also living in a small community. There are many family-owned businesses that thrive and continue to grow. The restaurants offer many different types of food and have great service and many affordable options!

There are three different wellness facilities, nice parks, a local farmer's market, and an engaged swimming pool and golf course. There is not a place that has an indoor swimming pool in the community.
There are more mom-and-pop shops, rather than big companies. It is very easy to find quality items to purchase, but there is not the variety that a larger metropolitan area has.
