I live with my parents in a great neighborhood with great neighbors, who watch out for you when you are not home. Police drive be occasionally just checking things out..Only one big concern, is with the abandoned house on the corner. Would hate to see someone hurt in it with kids playing around it, an eyesore, but could really hurt someone who goes in it.

Nokomis is definitely small town living. It is a quiet town. Neighbors are friendly. You don't get all the traffic noise like you do in a bigger city. The only negative I have is that it is far away (at least 30 minutes) from a larger town.
Small town community where everybody knows everyone..Would like to live in a bigger town or city where job opportunities are better.
