It's quiet, not a whole lot happens here. I just recently moved here after living a couple towns over and it's the same small town vibes you can find anywhere else in Southern Illinois. My neighbors are nice, most of the town is elderly or families, and you have a small selection of grocery/convenience stores.

Christopher is a cliquey type town. "Outsiders" are not always welcome. Some neighborhoods are decent. A lot of the roads are terrible and need worked on.
I love my little town of Christopher. We are close just a big happy family. If someone needs help plenty of people come to help.
