I like that every one is super friendly and that there's always festivals going on in town. I wish there were better breakfast places around me because the one's that are are not my favorite.. I do like the pizza places and how there a lot of restaurants open until late coming from a town where everything closes before 9pm. Also love the convenience of drive thru's and a variety of fast food.

Very family friendly, and very safe. Have lived here all my life. There are so many fun little shops, and the schools are great. Its close to pretty much everything, so you don't have to take long drives just to get somewhere else.
I would like to change the town community of global education. I would like to see the town recognize global education and how important it is in the education system. I recently traveled to India to teach, and I think it could have a major impact.
