The town is fairly small, every body knows every body. There are multiple family owned shops and it is close to all major highways.

I only lived here for about a year before I was on my to college as I had moved there from my old home. My fears of having no friends where quickly banished as I became integrated in the society there and it is a truly beautiful and quite place to live.
