    Buena is a rural community with many farms. The schools are better than surrounding districts, but funding from the state and federal government is limited. Property taxes are high. Recreational activities are limited.

    There isn't much to offer. Only a couple of Pizza shops, dollar stores, and other food places. Nothing out of the ordinary. I live by a major highway so it gets to be quite noisy.

    The housing is nothing special even though there are a bunch of new houses being built
