Wellington is a very affordable place to live. The people are fairly pleasant, and it's pretty much just like any other small, Midwest town. There isn't much to do recreation wise.

Friendly little town, but not a whole lot to do for fun. One movie theater, a swimming pool and a ton of parks. It does have a great 24 hour diner which are hard to come by in small towns.
Wellington is a small town with a big city attitude. There is a lot of potential for growth. The public pool is a great attraction. As well as the golf course. The downtown area is well kept and convenient.
