Small town with opportunities to receive a good education, be involved in many types of sporting activities, and feel safe. McKenzie is less than 5,000 people and sometimes you think you know everybody when you go to the Dollar General or grocery store. The atmosphere makes you feel welcome and you are able to make life-long friends since most of the high school students in the town are involved with the same activities you are. Finally, McKenzie has a fantastic fireworks show - worthy of a big city.
