It is a small town, but a nice town. Just like in the movies, you know just about everyone. There are plenty of places to get food right in the middle of town. Frozen Head State Park is also located here and is worth going to see. Beautiful waterfalls and nice trails to hike. They also stock the creek with rainbow trout during part of the year and is a fun activity to do. It truly is a nice little town. It is safe and the people are very welcoming. It is located in the middle of the county, so every other town is just a short drive away, which is quite nice.

This is a beautiful, rural area with lots of outdoor options. Mountains to hike and rivers for water sports of all types. Small town feel that's good for raising a family. Larger cities within 30 minute drive for more dining and shopping options. I wish there were more industry for better jobs. The prison is one of the biggest employers. More industry would attract other businesses and more opportunities for the residents.
It is a beautiful area with a lot of outdoor activities and state parks, however, it doesn't capitalize on this. We need more businesses and jobs. It is a small town so many people drive in order to go to stores, eat out, watch movies etc. If we had more offered in our town, more people would come here for tourism.
