New Prague is a small, but growing town and most people here were born and raised in New Prague as were their parents, grandparents etc. Most people are conservative and don't like other people's political views but wont start any actual fights over it, better to just not bring up politics. New Prague has a really good education system and is in the top 10 schools in the state. I think we need more things to do for fun, all we have is a bowling alley and we have to drive 30-40 minutes to go shopping for clothes or go to the movie theater.

New Prague offers a very safe community and is great for everyone from families with young kids to the elderly. Unfortunately, it's not the most diverse place, and some people might not feel very accepted by the older and more conservative community.
Small town with not a lot to do. You have to drive at least 20 minutes to find shopping, entertainment, restaurants, etc. The town has two fast food places, a handful of restaurants but not a lot for students to do. Cost of housing is high for what you get. If you are looking for a small town to raise your family, it is a good place. Just a little to small town, where everyone knows your business.
