I have lived here all of my life, and so has many who have lived here. It is somewhere that families tend to stay for an abundance of years, and do not particularly leave. The community is family friendly and everyone knows everyone.

There are great outdoor activities with mosquito.
Most people drive, some people take the bus, and few walk or ride bikes.
