It's a small time and It's really nice to still have your friends you still have since you were a baby, and thats what I like about this small town. I like how this town is super safe. People don't lock their doors at night and kids are allows to walk across town to a friend's house without supervision. No one commits any crimes because if you did, chances are that someone you know will see you doing it.

Willows is a small quiet country town with a fairly strong community; that makes it a very peaceful place to live. However, it could use some form of recreational entertainment.
A small town of roughly 7,000. Great for families and those looking to settle down. It is a agricultural town so if you enjoy that it's the town for you. It has one high school and the whole town will support them during there season and play offs.
