There are lots of fun things to do here. The city provides events on main street, farmers markets, concerts in the park. There are many beaches and parks that are in excellent shape. Many of the shops here are run by friendly people.
very little crime happens in this area of minnesota. police make themselves visible which i believe helps keep the crime down in this area.
