Forest City is a small and friendly town. It is highly recommended for families with children and elderlies. There are a lot of local restaurants and stores. It is located around an hour of distance from other well know cities. It would be great if there were more job opportunities.

This area is the best from a mother's point of view. You can chose where to live, and with three young children, you can decide to spend a high dollar on entertainment with the family, or you can easily decide to not spend any money out-of-pocket and still go to free events around the city and still have a great, family, fun filled time. I've lived all over the world, from the U.S.A., to Japan and Guam, but here has your family that you can involve anytime!
I love my neighborhood, it is a very quiet and relaxing place to call home. It is a great place to raise your family and to work. You are close to restaurants, department stores, the interstate and hospitals.
