It is a small town and everyone knows each other. Residents get together and have parties and picnics. The town park is popular for town fairs, fireworks, picnics, activities and sports. All the kids in the town play one or many sports and it brings families together to make new friends; even for the parents. People stay in this area for most of their life. Kids leave for college or jobs but always return to existing family here. The community is very people and pet friendly. Pets are allowed in all neighborhoods, parks and local bike paths. Families are always seen out walking pets in all safe neighborhoods.
It's a nice safe community and you get what you pay for. It's an overall great area, and with downtown so close there's always fun things going on, especially in the summer.
