Morton is a small town with limited of business. My experience from there is good because there is a little bit of everything, not as many but certain things that are needed. The economy is good but I hope that it could change a little on job opportunities over the future. There are more unemployment's than it should, it's not a big town or city but it could change with opening more businesses that can be planned. Overall, there is a fun place to visit which is the Roosevelt State Park and good restaurants to go to. The living is good in this town.

Morton is a very small town. It’s a place where most of everyone knows everyone. There is a big state park, called Roosevelt that they are known for. It’s where people can camp out, fish, ride on their boats, swim, or just have a great time.
Morton is a great small town, everybody knows just about everybody. However I wish there were a couple of different restaurants like a deli and a coffee shop where there’s just a nice environment for students to study.
