I love Fairview so much. When we moved here a few years ago, I just instantly felt like this was a better place to be. I love the location in terms of vicinity to the lake. Hopefully expansions to the town will be seen within the next few years.

I love Erie, Pennsylvania with all my heart, I really do. It's beautiful here, I don't know who could come here and not say that. The only thing I would want to change about this place is the weather. We strike number one on the national snow globe contest every year. Sometimes the weather is just a bit extreme to be living in, but we all manage to get through it every year. Besides the weather Erie has been a great place that I have ad the opportunity to live. We have Presque Isle State Park, it's 13 miles of free beaches to swim at all summer. It's one of the key points of Erie that everyone goes to at least a couple times every summer. We can't leave out all the great people that live here too. We have some extraordinary people in this city who are capable of anything! We are Erie proud!
Fairview is small town usa. The people are friendly and there is a lot of open space. It's beautiful country farmland but not so far away from the city that getting what you want is difficult.
