Windsor is a very small, safe town. There are not many many opportunities in Windsor. There are not many jobs to choose from unless you plan on being a farmer or a teacher. There is a small amount of entrepreneurship throughout the small town which involves small business owners. Your friend circle stays very small and you stay very close to your family.

Windsor is a lovely town. While it is no longer in its prime, it is surviving well. The community is welcoming, and filled with good people. There are not many opportunities in Windsor, but there are some in the surrounding areas. There is a nice park for children, with several small shops on Main Street to keep people interested. Overall, a nice small town with all the niceties of small town living.
For the most part, there is no crime. There was a break-in at one of the stores in town recently, but otherwise the town has low problems with crime. Safety is the standard; the town looks out for each other.
