    It's a nice scenic drive through the rural areas of Washington - if you're looking for amenities like fast food or a movie theater, you're out of luck. More for the type of person who likes the outdoors and space to roam.

    There seems to be minimal crime. There does seem to be an increase of crime during summer months with tourism and in areas where public transportation is available.

    You can access most all necessities in Amboy at the local market but most residence travel half an hour or more to Battleground or Woodland.
