If you like noise you will love Rush City. Loud and louder. Loud cars, loud motorcycles, loud trucks. Backwards. Not environmentally friendly. Blue collar, do not value education.

I personally love Rush City, Minnesota! This is the town that I will graduate in, and I plan to live in. It has a very small tightknit community. We work to help eachother out, and better the community. However, ever community has a rough side to it. I would like to see the crime rate decrease in Rush.
Rush City has a great sense of community for its residents. Everyone has everyone's back. There is not a lot here, however. On the bright side, Rush City is still close enough to surrounding towns where it isn't that big of a problem.
