Great little town in the country. People are welcoming. The school system seems wonderful. And the service in the little restaurant and antique shop are great. Not for those who crave big city life. It's small, simple, and unique.

Something I love about Merino is how small the town is. Everybody knows who you are. Another thing I love is how “safe” the environment is. I’ve lived here my whole life and I’ve never been worried about bad things happening.
