I've lived in Creston my whole life and have never had bad experiences. The town is very small, but cute. All the businesses have very friendly workers. The town is clean and great environment to live in.

Nothing too exciting here. Two gas stations and a dollar general. Nowhere to hang out, nothing really to do.
A small town, with not much to do, however this town has a great school district and is very safe. I grew up here, and wouldn't have it any other way.
