This town is very community oriented. Neighbors are friendly, pets are welcome, and there are several community events. For example: 150th anniversary of our bank, 4th of July celebration, carnival, and street dance just to name a few.

There are three restaurant options in town. They are all family friendly, slightly bar-atmosphere places.
There is a great jazzercise facility that is very popular as well as water aerobics. I think a good majority of the town participates in exercise regularly.
