    There are some really nice bars/restaurants to go to. They have really good service, and their quality/quantity is great for their prices. I love eating out here.

    Because this is such a small town, there is really only one of each kind of store, or the stores are more tourist like. I enjoy living here, but I sometimes find myself going to nearby towns that have more options for my shopping needs.

    Most of the people that live here in town have to travel to other town/out of state for work. I got lucky because I applied to work at the local High School. There are a few businesses for students to work at, but nothing that is worth staying for.
