    I personally believe that this area is too small with nothing to do. In order to go out to eat or go shopping, you have to drive at least 20 minutes to get to a decent store. I would not live here all over again because nothing ever happens in this small town.

    If you want to move into the area, you won't find a nice house. All the houses in this area are older and unattractive. There isn't a large selection.

    In this area, everybody knows everybody but no one ever really talks to each other.
