I love Gold Bar! The clean fresh air, lazy river and breathtaking scenery is straight out of childhood fairy tale. The woods and wild life are intoxicating full of adventure and wonder. Plus, the Cafes and Drive through burger joints like Zekes are craving worthy. During the summer the warm sandy river side invites you for a dip in the refreshing water while during winter the water glistens like a stain glass.

Gold Bar is my childhood home. I grew up interacting with the neighborhood families. My family and I use to throw bbq's and invite everyone in the neighborhood to join. I also played kickball in the col-de-sac where I use to live. I also experienced immersing myself in the different cultural backgrounds during bbq's or kickball sessions.
Small town small opportunities. Many commute to outside towns for jobs
