It is a type of town that you need to get away from for awhile but once you leave, you will want to come back.

There is a sense of good safety. Crime is not very prevalent in this area and is not very concerning. The police are very visible and helpful. The community as a whole is really safe.
Very rural and homey atmosphere. I would choose to live here again and compared to everywhere else in the country is very calm and quiet.
