    Here in the little city of Center Point there isn't many things to do but it's expanding and getting better. The more people that move in the more new things are added to Center Point. In my opinion Center Point is big enough that there are a decent number of things to do in order for it to be interesting but its also small enough that we don't get many of the problems of the larger cities.
