Nyssa Reviews

Small, friendly and tucked away off the beaten path. Everyone knows their neighbor and the schools get a lot of support from the community. Nyssa puts a lot of effort into community events and it shows. Main Street is cute and welcoming, though housing within city limits runs small and is 30 plus years old. A great place to live the simple life and yet have easy access to more populated areas a few miles away. The school, the library, the senior center, dart leagues, church activities, and community volunteering provide most of the local entertainment.

I like that it is a small town so you get to know most of the people. Another good thing about a small town is that in school you are most likely to make it into a team as opposed to a big school where the competition is greater.
