Evans is a decent area. Has pretty good food places- especially pizza. Beaches are pretty good too. Houses along the lake are gorgeous and most areas are pretty nice.

well residents who sit on their butts viewing Town of Evans that bully and belittle others is no town to raise a family. If they don't like you ,they'll make life misery.
This is a nice area to live in. Although it is somewhat rural, it is within distance to get to things to do if you have a car. The beach is very close. People are nice and the school was good. It is a quiet area with not a lot of crime. If you like small town living this is a good area to be.
