This is a very quiet and peaceful area. The community has always been family oriented and pretty safe place to live and raise a family. There is a twenty minute commute to a Walmart however there is a few Dollar Stores available and it appears to be growing continuously. Residential areas are growing with new subdivisions as well.
The only popular store around here is Wag-a-pak.
