This area is a small town near two larger cities. The area 15 minutes drive from our town is a series of suburbs. You can go to many activities and stores, work at big companies or enjoy entertainment in either big city and in many of the suburbs even if the activity is not in a 15 min drive distance you will find it driving 35 minutes away.
I like living near a sporting club with fishing, camping, hiking, biking and boating.
