My family loves our small town- we have an adorable, authentic main street, with a small park with a gazebo, antique stores, florist, local bars and town hall. Everything is walkable by nature trails, and feels safe and cozy.

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).
