I really enjoyed living around Manito. They offered a well rounded school district, and everyone, despite the high Catholic population, was very accepting. When you were in town, you could say hello to everyone and expect a friendly response. They offered a multitude of small, family owned business that provide excellent service. Something I would like to see change is the amount of small restaurants. There are two in town that are fabulous, and I really believe they would benefit from some more that offer different styles of food.
Manito has a very low to almost non-existent diversity in their community. It is a very predominate white, straight, Christian or Catholic community with little cultural edcucation.
Manito is a very small place and, along with that fact, options for entertainment and staunchly limited. I would love to abandon this area permanently and explore what is else out there in the rest of the world. The future of this area reflects my ratings above being that it is stagnant. Not a lot has changed about this area since I was a child and I believe the same amount complacency will be present another twenty years down the road. It is, however, friendly and engaging since everyone basically knows everybody else.
