This is town is a your small town USA. Lots of farms, tractors, and hunting. Most people are friendly and the schools are always up to date. I wish there were more job opportunities but all there is a Dunkin Donuts. This is the town of Mormons so the summer there are lots of tourists but I think that's pretty cool.

I love living here! It has such a small town feeling to it and a strong community. I love all of the community events and all the wonderful walking trails along the canal as well.
The people are so nice and helpful if your lost. They had on these 4 corners they had a church on each one. I would change the school food and add a salad bar.
