I lived in the small town of Sugarcreek which is nestled in the rolling hills of Amish country for several months. It proved to be a very positive experience. Due to strong Swiss influence, the buildings in downtown Sugarcreek are built in the traditional Swiss style which lends it a unique feel. Sugarcreek also proudly presents the world's largest cuckoo clock which attracts many tourists and contributes to the number one source of income for the town. The public schools in the area are quite successful with the graduation rate over 95%. It's a family friendly town where I felt safe walking around town alone at night. If you're looking for an active nightlife, Sugarcreek has little to offer but boasts a crime rate well below the national average. The employment rate is five percent with numerous job opportunities within a thirty- minute commute and the cost of living is below average, making it a great place to live.
I've lived in many different towns, even different states. This town has been the best place I've ever lived in. Not even exaggerating, the people here (not just the Amish) are so friendly and accommodating. I've never lived anywhere where I have felt so comfortable and safe. I feel like I belong here and I've never been happier.
