My experience here is visiting cousins and friends, having backyard hangouts, and communicating with the people around. Everyone is pretty nice, it is also diverse.
Conover is a quite town with trials in the woods and small businesses to support. There could be more entertainment activities such as bowling or a movie theater but there are entertainment active in other towns close by.
