Local Reviews

We are a very friendly family oriented town. We have a very beautiful downtown. Lots of restaurants. Very kid and pet friendly

Good school. Unique paths to a park. Love how close we are to highway as well as a train. Cute downtown with lots to do - see a movie , eat, drink, bowl, play games

The old atmosphere meaning buildings,trees and homes that are antiques and not trendy but comfortable to live in even if you need a fireplace.

I like the family friends and area. I like that we are close to the things I need and the highway. I really like the park system.

Nice houses, nice neighbors, i love how quiet it gets at night ifs very peaceful. I love that i can walk safely at night

Nothing much is around here. And nothing is open late. Everything closes early. And more here too also.
