Great place to grow up. Very family friendly. Excellent schools. Close to state park and several lakes. Gorman Nature Center has great hiking trails. Other nearby activities include Snow Trails Ski Lodge and Malabar Farm.
Small town. Good high school athletics. Not so great reputation in the surrounding areas. Schools are outdated- but plan to be building new soon. Not many places to go. Have to go out of town about 5-10 minutes to get to most of the everyday things.
