I love how my city is a small but is filled with all great types of people. Most of the people I have intrigued my self with has been very generous and thoughtful. I like how we have a few restaurants and a couple gas stations in my town, but it is not to crowded.

I have lived in Lyman my entire life. It's a cute little town right in the middle of two decent sized cities. The cost of living is overall affordable. There are small businesses that supplied the locals with necessities. If unable to find what you're looking for in the town you can drive 5 to 10 mins to the next town to find what you are looking for.
Lyman is a small town that I grew up around. Most people know each other or at least recognize one another.
