There isn't anything to do. There is a gas station with a subway, a cider works store, and orchards. The nature is abundant, thought. It's okay if you like to live in the middle of nowhere. There aren't ever any disturbances. There are no sounds of traffic and a pretty open space. I like it because it is calm, but dislike it because it's boring.

There is a lot of fruit stands, one gas station, and a small overpriced convenient store in what actually makes up the town. More orchard land than anything.
Very often sunny during the summer, great vacation spots if you want to get out of the city, but in the winter it gets really cold because of the nearby water sources.
