I think this is an overall great community, safe for families. There is day and night time entertainment and plenty to do in and around the area. I think the schooling system is great, especially the public schools. The general atmosphere is very welcoming and youthful.

We have a really nice downtown area on the north side of our town. It has a movie theater, many frozen yogurt shops, Starbucks, and many restaurant options that would appeal to all types of people all within walking distance of each other.
I am only 19 years old so I am not looking for lifetime jobs at this point. However, as someone that has been employed for four summers now and having friends that all have jobs in my town I know that they didn't have to do much to get a good job that worked for them.
