Rushford is a small town with great neighborhoods. The school is only 2 years old and a great learning experience. Many activities to do all year long. Wonderful biking and hiking trails to keep you busy all summer long. Plenty of places to relax and take a break. Lots of choices to pick from for eating.
Rushford is a very small, safe, family-friendly town. There are not a lot of things to go out and do, but there are bigger towns thirty minutes to an hour away.
