Local businesses in my area are great. my area is very popular for restaurants/bars. The restaurant services have been blooming like crazy. I have eaten at the majority of restaurants in my area, and i have been nothing but pleased by the food and the service that I have received. There are hardly any fast food places in this area which is great because i can always turn to a lot of healthier options!

moderately average. hot summers pretty cold winters and warm spring and fall days. natural disasters rarely happen
because there are so many local shops, businesses, and restaurants around there are hardly any people complaining about not being able to find a job
