Dexter is a small town, where everyone knows everyone. It has that small town feeling. Here is where everyone will greet new comers and help when people need it. The people in this town are extremely pleasant and are and will go that extra mile to help you feel welcome.
What I would like to see for this town is that the town start to grow especially in businesses for the people here.

I have lived in Dexter all my life and I love it. For those that like the small town lifestyle, this would be the perfect calm area you are looking for. I am within only a few miles of other small towns and even a few decent sized cities. It certainly is not for those that prefer the hustle and bustle of city life though because we are more of a slow paced town.
