The only downfall to this town is it is small and has nothing to really do. You have to drive an hour and 15 minutes to get to a Walmart. There is nothing for the teenagers to really do which is kind of sad but overall the town is not bad.

Since we are a small town, everyone help everyone else out when they need it.
Houses here are very cheap and affordable. We do have a large amount of empty houses though.
