There are lots of restaurants. There are also a variety so that there is something for everyone to enjoy. There are not that many bars and that is good because there is an older population here.

Employment isn't growing and there are not a lot of good jobs that pay a decent wage. There are fast food and clothing stores to work at. There are even some plants but not a lot of professional jobs.
This community has mostly small places to shop. People know you around here.
