This area is great for people that like small towns and not a lot of things in the area. There are new neighborhoods and beautiful homes but I wish there was a grocery store closer by instead of going to Abilene.

I have done my share of time out of this area, but it is one of the best places I have ever been. The people are friendly and it is the epitome of the small town feel.
There is not alot of crime. Like I say, the town is very quiet.
