I like the sense of family Oostburg has. Everyone seems to know each other which may seem annoying but can be nice. It's also a super family friendly area with basically no crime rate. The location is also pretty good. It's only about fifteen minutes away from Sheboygan, so if you need something that you cant get at Piggly Wiggly you can take the quick drive to Sheboygan. Although these things are pretty nice about Oostburg there is one downside which is that there is literally nothing to do here. If you want to do something besides go out to eat you have to drive at least a half an hour away.

Oostburg is a small and safe community. The people are very friendly and it is easy to make connections. People care for you and if you need any help, community members are more than willing to help you out.
Very judgemental people. They only do things that benefit themselves. THey discriminate on personal beliefs.
