Very remote little town. Just two gas stations, a dollar store, and a couple restaurants. You do have to travel at least 15 mins to get a meal from any sort of fast food chain. Nearest city is 20-25 mins away. Police are tough on speeding. Very calm, safe town. There’s nothing like living in the country. Quite the experience.

Living in a small town like Santa Rosa you get to know people better and have a closer relationship to the people who live here. There are two gas stations, one Dollar General, and a Subway which isn't much but with the type of population we have we don't need much. If I had the chance to change something in Santa Rosa it would be the cost of living because some of the prices are a little expensive for the type of house you'd be living in along with the area.
Santa Rosa is all about our basketball team. I love this town I am a High School senior and will leave in 2 months this is one thing I am applying for. Small town and people know who is who and what others do. This town is the best in my opinion. This is my last time for band with marching season it was an amazing experience
