Clubs would be great for the nightlife, especially for the upcoming generations. I love southern dishes! My favorite restaurants to eat southern meals are Cracker Barrel & The Oakwood Cafe.

I enjoy it here. It's a fairly small town, but everyone is friendly!
Wide variety of stores! Some are better than others. Most are very liked and managed by friendly people.
