I absolutely love it here! This is where I call home now. I've met some great people who I will keep in contact with for the rest of my life. I feel so safe here compared to the nearest larger city and my previous town. Plus it's a beautiful place to live!
Very friendly small town. Gets a lot of traffic in the afternoon due to commuters from the twin cities, but the town is vey pleasant and clean.
