Wellington is a great community for someone who is looking for a quiet, reserved life in a small town. The towns population is dominated mainly by elderly, and middle aged people. If you are younger, Wellington is most likely not the place for you. I've had about the average experience living as a teenager in this town. There's not much to do in the summer except go to the pool unless you go to a surrounding town. The town has a bit of an issue with druggies who will just roam the streets, but they're typically not dangerous unless bothered. The crime rate is low, only a few incidents here and there. There's a rec center that offers great services for children in the summer. The town is very slow moving. Overall if I were to move away from this area, I would only move back if I was retiring.

Good hometown vibe and lots of community events to get involved with! Wellington continues to expand each year and offer more opportunities.
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.
