I like the small business support in Oxford, but the safety could be boosted as well as the care for some roads.

I have lived there my entire life. I love that people are generally friendly and people are starting to renovate their homes. There is a casino that went in about 2 years ago and 2 hotels are being built. So jobs are starting to come back. The theater is open again and it was redone. It's awesome. The town was super sleepy before. But with all the new jobs people are actually out and about and the casino brings in some more money for the town. Overall it is my favorite place. Home now and forever.
Applebees- I think this place could use many improvements. It has never been good service or meals when I have gone there.
