Nice community but does not have much to do in the area. There needs to be more things to do and I would probably give it a few more stars.
A small town provides for lots of opportunities for kids to get involved in lots of different things. But small town also means everyone knows everyone else's business. While we live in the Midwest and don't have any mountains or oceans, we do have beautiful areas in the fall and lakes to enjoy in the summer.
