    Boyd is a small town. We have one red light, a small grocery store and Allsups gas station is where the highschoolers spend most of their time.in my opinion it's a great place to be. You get to experience the general "small town" experience in the best way. I would definitely live here again if I could start over. I could see myself starting a family here. However, Boyd is getting bigger. Within the last few years, we've added a Sonic drive in, a new high school, added on to the Allsups, Freedom Fried Burgers, and a few hair and nail salons.

    Boyd really doesn't have a high crime rate. Almost everyone gets along or keeps the peace.
