The local businesses in this are look kinda of sketchy especially the non-commercial stores. Menards, Home Depot, Wal-greens, Wal-mart, etc are all good stores. They normally have whatever you need and the hours of service are convenient.
People generally live here for a long time. The area is very pet and family friendly. There are some community events.
