The "Christians" here are cliquey and judgmental. Southern hospitality does not exist here. There's no nightlife or anything for young adults to do. A lot of drugs and very few police.
We have lived in Mtn View for 4 years and LOVE it here. We wouldn’t change a thing. The schools are awesome which is a huge plus. We’re close to town but still far enough away to feel like we’re in a more country setting. So glad we decided to raise our kids here
