I love the small town environment. Very welcoming and incredible community. More funding to the school district would be a beneficial imporvement.
It's a small town with a small population. We have many restaurants and the only fast food we have is Subway. We are a sometimes considered a "hick" town. Main Street family restaurant is one of the best places to eat. There isn't much to do but we do have two lakes, a beach, and a bowling ally.
