There is nothing to do at night except go to the bar and get drunk and since I'm not a drinker, there's just nothing to do. The kids and young people are bored and getting into drugs as a result and they keep closing all the 24 hour places so now there really isn't anywhere to go. I have lived here for almost eighteen years and all I have watched is decline. It used to be a tourist town but now, the residents barely want to be here.

There's a lot of really diverse businesses throughout the area. The people who work in each business are generally really friendly and genuinely seem to want to serve others and do the best job they possibly can. There's a lot of typical, small businesses such as candle shops and small ethnic restaurants. The small size of these businesses and the committed nature of those who work at them makes the area extremely endearing.
Here and there you hear about criminal activity regarding robberies, violence or sexual assaults. The university and the police to a great job in alerting the students on campus and the people around.
