Even though I have not ranked my living area the best on the scales that have been provided. I do like where I live, because it is my home, but it is also all I have ever known. I do not know how to life anywhere else, but I do enjoy my area. I feel safe where I live, and I like that it is a somewhat small community. There are several thing in the town that I wish were different. There are no places for teenagers to hangout, and there are no good restaurants in town. The town is mostly designed for older people because there are so many elderly people, but there are a lot of teenagers and young adults in town. It would just be nice if there were restaurants open past 9 P.M.
The people in wright county are very kind and can be very helpful in your time of need. I would live here for a very long time. It is not a small county but there is always something to do between the different small cities in it.
