It's a great little town. Everyone kind of knows everyone and everyone is friendly. It has so many lakes surrounding it. Also it's a great town to raise a family because it's not to far from different school districts, so there's options to send your kids to for school.

Small town in southern Minnesota, about 15 minutes away from Mankato. Very scenic. In the summer has events like Paddle fish days. Your standard small town.
