I think the area is very safe and friendly. I think it's in the perfect place; the cities aren't too far away, and there's fun things to do surrounding us in both directions. There's a variety of place to eat, and for fun, there's a bowling alley and a movie theater. It's a very family oriented community, which is nice for me for babysitting opportunities. The city is close enough to the cities where we're not out in the middle of nowhere, but we're also far enough out where there's still multiple farms within a few miles of each other.

The community is very tight knit. Everyone looks out for one and other and offers support to other families when it is needed. The school system is one of the highest performing in the state because of the support by the parents and other community members. It is also a very safe neighborhood to live in. I have lived here my whole life and I am very thankful that I got the chance to grow up in such an amazing community. Even though this city continues to grow in population every year, it somehow still manages to retain that "small neighborhood" feel that most people like.
Half rural, half suburban. Love the growing town, the school, the local businesses. Only downside is aside from outdoor activities there is not much to do, but we do have lots of places to get pizza!
