Living in a small town has a lot of advantages. Most importantly, it gives you the feel of having a very large family. People are always looking out for one another and helping others out when needed. It's a great environment to raise children and parents can feel comfortable knowing that even if they do not know where or what their children are doing, I bet their neighbor could tell you! We are a very close-knit community and I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.

If one prefers a small town and a simple lifestyle, then sure you would enjoy here. but if your like me, then you would find it incredibly dull and miserable. Its up to taste though I suppose.
Convenient stores, liquor stores, grocery stores, and local resturants have a overall okay drinking and food menus.
