Long Lake Reviews

2 reviews
A small, not-up-to-date town. Somewhere in the middle of entering the 21st century while still trying to keep it's old school perks. Generally quiet besides the few teenage kids running around here and there. The local public school's elementary, middle and high school are all on one street, meaning when school is close to starting in the morning, the amount of hectic cars finding their destination is quite insane. Though the closest supermarket, Target, and mall are at least twenty minutes away, the stores in town still manage to have most things you'll need last minute. There are a handful of standard fast food restaurants. With a town so small, most everyone knows each other. You'll eventually get to know the mechanic real well, even the workers in the drive thru at McDonald's, or the cashier at the convenient store. Everyone is more than plenty welcoming, and the neighborhoods are usually always filled with children of all ages.

This area has lots of trails to walk and bike on in the summer time. If you love being outdoors there is a lot to do and water close by. You can go to the beach or a park, there are many options for kids as well.
