What I like about this city is how peaceful and simple it is to live here. Everything you need is close to your home. For example, there's a big plaza with multiple markets and stores that offer many goods and services. In addition, there are multiple parks and schools that are near almost every home. One of the great things about this city, in my opinion, is how quiet it can be. It's not too busy throughout the day, so it's easy for one to get around and accomplish what they need to accomplish.

Very nice lovley staff at recreations. Always have wonderful events all the time for community. Very very community friendly. Town center is very helpful when needed. Have alot of crafts for kid, during the summer have very good lunch at the city parks.
A few things about the city are it's very clean and well maintained. The city is divided into two parts residential and industrial. It does have a couple of elementary schools and one high school. The schools are great academically. The homes are nice and affordable. They're are plenty of parks that have sport leagues throughout the year. Also, although there are not many restaurants or shopping center in the city they're are plenty in the surronding cities. However, there are not very many apartment buildings so unless you're planning to buy or rent a house you really can't live in this city.
