This town is one of the best towns that I have lived in because even though the variety is really big but they all serve close to the same thing but all of their own way of making it their own specialty. We do have a Mexican restaurant in the area called Victors. That is one of my most favorite places to eat. It is very authentic and all homemade!

Some of the people in the community are very good and respectful. You have other people that are very rude and we have some major issues that we need to take care of, we are taking care of it a little but I think they need to do a better job at it. The roads here are awful. We have so many potholes. Some of the roads during the winter they don't plow until it gets really bad.
In this area because a majority of the employment here is locally owned so sometimes you will be able to get minimum wage and other times you can not. Because this town heavily relies on tourist in the summer months for camping and other activities and during the winter for our snowmobile trails we have many restaurants therefore, you have lots of serving jobs at which most of the time you do not get paid minimum wage.
