The open skies is something everybody always dreams of, the rolling storms are never really spoken of, everybody has their drives and passions, and everybody has somewhere to go. Jamestown is undgoing a verge of a developing economy. Good coffee, kind drivers, and a local university keeps jamestown simplicity at its finest. This town is like any, theirs a park, and a grocrey store. What makes it unique is the perseverance every body incourpates in to their lifes, just looking around you can see it. Jamestow is filled with so much beauty, I mean the rolling hills speak for themselves.

The area is too small for my liking. The only thing to do around here is drink and go to church. The local university is well respected, but it needs a lot of work (physically) that is. Do not attend the university if you do not play sports.
Jamestown has a variety of restaurants nearby that you can choose from. The restaurants offer a lot of great and delicious food. You can choose from going to The Hong Chong Buffet for Chinese or Paradiso for Mexican. In restaurants that have specials every week in my opinion are the best, because they are serving some of my favorite foods. At The Depot they serve you knoephla every Thursday, which is nice, since it is an excellent home cooked meal that will remind you of your mom's delicious home cooked meals. Overall any restaurant you go to, you will be satisfied with the great service and food choices to offer.
