I love that this town is small and when you go to the pride station they remember your name. This town has a lot of carnivals and family functions throughout the year for everyone to attend. The police force and those protecting this town are all kind and they care about every person that is there. If they can help they will! The schools are great, night life is quiet.

I like that it is a small town and most people are rather friendly and everything is accessible with a 5 minute car ride but I do not like the clicks that begin in the schools at the second grade level. Also because it is a small town you find that children often get pigeon holed at a young age in sports, skills and abilities. Students are pushed towards a college education and not necessarily towards vocational careers which restricts a large group of children from excelling.
This town is truthfully the quintessential small, American town. You'll find far more local businesses than franchises and you get that personalized blend of farm and city.
