Few restaurants in the area for a nice night out. Chillicothe has a few; El Toro's, El Nopal, Applebee's, Washington Street Station (the one in Trenton is better). Chillicothe also has a good Barbeque place, Wabash. Brookfield has Tequila Jalisco and the 36 Diner. Brookfield has the Brickhouse Restaurant for "fine dining", but I have been less than impressed with the food, service, and atmosphere every time I have eaten there, I keep going back(or getting invited out to go there) hoping this time will be better, but my hopes get dashed.

Brunswick does have an EXCELLENT place to eat, The Railyard. The food is to die for, the service is awesome, and the atmosphere is fun and relaxed. The only complaint is that it is not open but a few days/evening a week.

The area is mostly agricultural and factory jobs. Many people in Linn County work for Walsworth Publishing and many work there for their entire working life, 30-40 years. Stanbury Uniforms is another factory in Linn County that has employees that stay from high school graduation until retirement. In the northern counties of the area, many work for Farmland and Premium Standard Farms. The work is hard and I haven't heard of as many people making a lifelong commitment to the company. For jobs that pay a living wage, people have to be willing to drive a ways.
We have several state parks around, can't be beat for camping,wildlife watching, and nature walks. This is a very rural area so finding places to ride ATVs and off roading is easy, just remember to ask the landowner's permission first and leave the place in decent shape. Come on, they wouldn't come in your yard and tear it up, don't destroy their property either. Hunting and fishing is abundant; catfish, crappie, bass, deer, turkey, duck, goose. Again, make sure you have the landowner's permission and follow all hunting and fishing regulations. And if you are coming for a trophy buck, don't just leave the meat. there is system in place for the local food banks to get the meat, some people survive on that.
