I never feel unsafe or threatened here, even walking around at night. However, venturing into Sunnyland is another story.

Nothing specifically in town, but you're close to larger towns where there are more transportation options.
We do have nice workout facilities with a very helpful staff. As far as the people, I'd say we're pretty average as far as health goes. There are also running/biking trails around town that you can utilize.
