After having grown up in Mount Horeb, I believe it to be the ideal small town community. The community is close knit, and many families have lived there for generations; it's nearly impossible to not run into an old friend while out and about. Children grow up together in the schools, and due to the safe environment and low crime, it's perfectly safe for children to roam the town playing with their friends.

The only downsides to Mount Horeb are the lack of nightlife options, and low levels of diversity. However, over the last decade the population has increasingly become more and more diverse, and a few more nightlife options have opened up. Thankfully, Madison is only a 30 minute drive away, and there's always something to do there.
a bit of a drinking culture around here. it's very much a small town that seems sweet on the outside but everyone gossips about everyone else's business. there are still quite a few very good people who live here and it has some beautiful parks around it and the military ridge running through it!
