I personally have lived in this area for all of my life. It has a very humble atmosphere to it. I probably would not choose to live in this town again if I had to. To me, it is too small. I prefer to be in a larger city. However, this town is very accepting of new people and is always open to improvements. Recently, they have experienced a boom in the entertainment industry with the addition of new casinos. I believe that if this town stays on this path of accepting new industry and creating new jobs, they will definitely prosper and grow as they wish to. This town is on its way to becoming a large city.
