I love this small town! The people and the atmosphere are amazing. Whenever all of the people in the community come together for events like football games really make you appreciate living in a small town.

Williston is a small town that is know for its role with asparagus and cotton. It is a town with friendly people that are always greeting each other. Everyone knows everyone in this small town. The schools here are good and the athletic teams are great. There could be a few more stores and more things for people to do. They could build a gym or fix up the park with
new basketball goals and a new batting cage. The library could also be a bit bigger. Just so kids can stay out of trouble. With that being said overall Williston is your average normal small town.
Overall, Williston is a good city to live in when you live on the outskirts of town. The people are incredibly nice and there is plenty of stores and resources for people interested in farming or owning horses. However, there aren't many stores. When grocery shopping you pretty much have to choose between Shumperts and IGA. One is crazy expensive and the other is not very clean. Because of the lack of stores, the lines are always really long.
