Gentry is a small town where everyone knows each other. Yet the people are kind and eager to help. There are several shops on main street that reach out to several passions from gardening, to music, to tattoos and jewelry. Though Gentry is mostly agricultural, there is a sense of art and family among the society.

Gentry is a quiet little city of about 4,000 people. It is about 30-40 minutes to big cities where there is a lot to do. In Gentry you can play at the park, enjoy city celebrations, walk downtown, or just sit outside and enjoy the smell of McKee Foods. If you have kids there are plenty of extracurricular activities for them to do.
It is a nice small quiet town. If you want one on one with the businesses and attractions, this is one place to go. With a Little Debbie market and the Wild Safari Drive Thru, Gentry is a nice hideaway for the family.
