    Nothing really to do around here. Everything is Farms and spread out where the local kids can't get work unless they walk 5 miles or bike, or have a vehicle. The locke lake community is family friendly, but expensive to live in. The rest of the town is so spread out that you dont really talk to your neighbors too much.

    There are rarely sidewalks in my area. There are no bike racks, often very little parking, and in order to get anywhere worth going you have to walk miles. There's no public transportation.

    Lots and lots of trees! A great area if you love the outdoors. Very little pollution and lots of wildlife.
