I think Dunlap is a cute little town, but it feels like everyone ignores the possibilities that it has. Almost every restaurant that opens in this town closed a few months later because it doesn’t get enough business. I think there should be more activities in the town to bring everyone closer together. There isn’t that many people living here, and even just a few streets down from me, there are many people that I’ve never talked to before. However, the baseball fields at North Park are a great place to get to see several friendly faces that live near me.

I enjoy living in Dunlap. This town has given me many new experiences. Before I moved here, I had been homeschooled. Coming to my neighborhood gave me the experience of a public high school. As a resident of Lake of the Woods, my address is Dunlap, while my school district is IVC.
Dunlap is a fantastic area that is incredibly family friendly and diverse. There are options for secluded living as well as suburban options.
