Small town community everyone knows everyone. There is not much besides a swimming pool, public park, and a library for the kids. Its a great community you can walk the streets without feeling unsafe. The town also has lots of events for the community to attend to, also summer programs to keep the children busy, for example summer ball and kids club all run by volunteered community members or high school students

Wellton is perfect for those who wish to be in a close knit community where everyone knows eachother. One thing I would change about wellton is more job opportunities for teenagers in high school.
I lived there when I was younger. the environment there is so nice and friendly. I can see myself living there in the future. Great place to live.
