Working in Elkader
I love the area that I live in. It's cute, quaint, and has a great community. The people are always friendly and saying hi to everyone, and you can't really go anywhere without running into someone you know! The restaurants are incredible and there are some food stands that are outstanding and you'll want to go to every day. I will live in the area again. I want my kids to grow up here when I have some and I want to enjoy my small town when I settle down and want to have a family.
There is not a lot of crime that goes on in the area. I feel safe keeping my doors unlocked at all times, and normally do. There is usually only one town cop on duty because we're a small enough area that we don't need many, and they are reliable and helpful when you need them.
