I love this little town! I have grown up and lived here most of my entire life. Everyone knows you or knows of you. (Which can be a hassle.) People are kind, always looking out for each other, and willing to offer a helping hand when needed. The location is about 1-1.5 hours from a mall in most all directions so if you want to do some shopping outside of your small town boutiques you don’t have to travel very far. Traffic is not a serious issue and schools are good for children.

I love the comfort I find living in the Paris community. Everyone knows everyone and it's all very homey. However, it would be nice if there were some new restaurants built in town. After awhile it gets a little old going to the same old places to eat every Friday night. Despite that, if there is ever a place you want to eat that has the best service, it is without a doubt the Mexican restaurant El Vallarta. Absolutely my favorite!
What I like best about living here is the affordability. Mostly whites, blacks, and mixed race people live here. The county comprises of mostly Republican/conservative views. It's easy to get around to most places here unless you're going to the lake, then it's about a 25 minute drive. Overall, this town is a family-friendly place to live. It's a safe place to live, as long as you know how to drive and swim, and you don't accidentally set fire to your house. Every year there are about 3-8 new businesses constructing new buildings in town. Road construction around town is moderate for main roads, but hardly anything gets done to improve side streets and back roads. As for dining, we have Mexican, Japanese, Chinese, fast food, and some family-owned restaurants. There's a rollerskating rink and public parks for kids, public swimming pool, Flex Fitness, the civic center, and not much else for kids and teenagers to do they're hunting, fishing, and ATV riding through the woods.
