Close-knit community, close to neighboring cities with plenty to do. Beautiful park system. Lovely pools. Friendly faces and families, neighbors will wave in passing. Everything is within walking distances or 5 minute drive max. Public library is top notch and has lots of programs for little ones. Sweetberry, the local market store is amazing, has fresh produce and a delicious prepared-foods selection. People come from all over to shop there, since the prices are super low.

It's a nice small town with friendly people but it is a little rundown. Most of the building are very old, including the public schools. There are lots of nice city parks that are well kept. The city also holds many fun events during the summer to bring people together and unite our community.
It's nice to live in a small city, but I feel like I missed out on some things as a student because of how small/low funded the school is. But I have had an overall good time living here!
