Colfax Township Reviews

Ames is a great place to raise children and have a family. The town is not very busy for people who like to do a lot of things at night, but typically there are a lot of children's events that families can participate in. I believe that the town is growing, and there are a lot of new businesses opening. The area has a lot of hipsters moving into it and it is very friendly for bicycles.
