Really beautiful place to live; a lot of family friendly activities! Weather is beautiful, summer is gorgeous and super enjoyable. I wish they would fix the main roads, but other than that its a picturesque, cookie cutter American Dream city.

The people are very friendly, and it has a very good sense of community. It is a very safe area, and the community is very involved in every aspect of the town. The high school has very high standard and difficult curriculum, but has many programs and keeps all of the students involved. The students leave high school very prepared.
Very safe and family friendly. Small town but has many historical charms within it. Great public schools, academic pathway is very rigorous.
