Harriman is a wonderful community that gives the small-town feel without being in the middle of nowhere. All of the downtown area is filled with local businesses, including a wonderful theatre and local restaurants. Harriman's citizens are willing to help their neighbors and do what is best for the good of the people.
Perfect if you are looking for country living without the hassles of city life. If you're looking for modern conveniences like food delivery/shopping options, those may not be available.
