    I have lived in Millersburg with my family for about three years now. While I am away at college during the school I always like to come back and spend time at home. The town is quite small and the people are generally friendly. The people in town are generally conservative. There are a few local businesses but nothing to extravagant. Overall Millersburg is a small, peaceful, town.

    Where I am from, we get each and every season. Spring, summer, fall and winter. It can be beautiful when the weather is nice. In the spring, the rainfall and storms are exciting, sometimes scary when we can possibly get tornadoes, but that is not too much of a concern. Summers are beautiful, and the lakes are enjoyable where I live. Summers can be insanely hot normally but when you have a pool or lake, it is beautiful. The fall time is my favorite, the weather is perfect, the leaves changing colors is always beautiful as well. Winter is my absolute least favorite, but our winters can vary big time. Some winters we have so much snow we are not able to drive on roads because of the conditions, other winters we might not get too much snow. It all depends. It can be beautiful though if you enjoy a white snowfall.

    We do not have very bike friendly roads at all in this area. Everything needs to basically be traveled by car. There are a lot of crazy drivers sometimes that just do not pay attention. I would love to run and walk outside but I feel so unsafe having to walk on the roads since there is no place to walk or ride your bike on a sidewalk. There is one bus that travels around town but that is at least 15 min away and they do not travel to my area. So most of the time, traveling by car is the only option.
