    It is a small town with a small town atmosphere. Everyone seems to know everyone, if they don't they get to know each other.

    There aren't many outdoor activities. We do not have any wildlife/national parks in this area. Our city parks are nicely kept. We have a really nice walking trail. As far as pollution goes, I would have to say, it is minimal in this area.
    The people in the area look out for each other. Usually your neighbors know when a strange vehicle is on your property. They will call you or one of your family to let them know.
