It’s a small cozy town. The population is low so everyone knows what’s going on and all the talk around the town. The schools are pretty good in terms of capable teachers in my opinion. There’s not much to do for recreational activities though and in general the atmosphere is calm, but verging on boring. The people who you hangout with definitely makes the difference. Lots of old conservative people though.

On what I like about Gustine is that it is a very small town. Everyone knows everyone, and it is also a safe and quiet town. Gustine is a good experience to have if you want to have peace compared to big city's, Something that I would change is that I wish it had more food resources.
I liked hoe it was very peaceful and quiet. There is really no danger, it is a very small town so everyone knows everybody. They are very friendly and I overall enjoy the valley life so if you enjoy that, this town is great for you to visit. Although, there isn't much to do.
