The town is small, clean, and generally a lovely place. Forbes Library is fantastic, and there are often events and festivals in Pulaski park. There are countless cafes and bookstores to try out, it's a charming town and easy to walk in. My only concerns are related to convenience and price. There aren't any larger grocery stores besides Deals and Steals and nothing is open after around 10pm. The restaurants can be quite pricey. But overall a lovely place to stop by, even if living in it is financially difficult.
