The area around here is pretty great. We have some nice pubs, local restaurants, a nice mountain with a mountain coaster, skiing trails, bike trails, and zip lining. We have white water rafting, tubing, and good areas for hunting and fishing.

The cops around here are okay, and seem to do their jobs pretty well.
