I loved this town mostly for how small it was. Everyone knew everyone, the community was great, and the education is one of the best. However; they could add small shops or stores to create a better place to visit.

Esko is a small country town. Very tight-knit community and great public schools. There is lots of land and space between neighbors.
Small town where people look out for each other. Good schools with small classes and great teachers to look out for you.
