If you don't enjoy living in the city, then this part of town is great for you. There are dozens of lakes you can go to fish and swim in. We get all four seasons and for the most part they are beautiful. There is lots of wild life and great space for pets.
There are very few crimes in the area and the majority of police use is in speeding management and EMS/emergency response.
