There isn't that much to do in the area. The area is close to a few larger cities that are within driving distance. The area is between rural city and middle of no where.
I really disliked living in this town. Technically I am still a resident but I attend college over seas. There is no diversity and people are really ignorant and judgmental. Everything is someone how connected and there is a giant drug problem. There are currently two houses that are burned to the ground because of a meth lab. There are plenty of job opportunities solely because no one wants to work or everything in a household depends on one working person. Nearly everyone is on welfare and the school system fails to protect or educate its children.
