Local business are rather friendly. Nothing about them makes them standout from other business however. For example the grocery stores such as Cub foods, coopers, rainbow, all have teenagers working there. They are friendly and have good customer service, but nothing out of the ordinary.

It's a good area for families, but is being built up too quickly (we are losing areas such as farmland and woods).
Beautiful scenery even when the temperatures drop below 0.
