There are quite a few average/below average bars & restaurants. My impression of the bars are they are sleezy. However there is like one very good bar and one very good restaurant in the whole town imo. There are no chain restaurants like Panda Express, Noodles & Co., Chipotle, Panera Bread, etc. There also is no Starbucks! The closest Starbucks is in Lake Geneva. I'm not sure what people even do for 'nightlife' besides house parties with underage drinking...

There isn't a variety of stores. There are a few good local businesses, but many are not nice. Everyone can get stuff at Walmart, which hurts the other businesses. Unlike Kenosha and Racine, there are no chain restaurants like Panda Express, Noodles & Company, or Starbucks. There also is no Target, but we have a small Kohl's. This sucks for teens and young adults. There isn't really much to do for younger people, so many people smoke weed and drink.... There are a lot of banks, salons, and bars. Not many of them high quality.

I've been able to grow up in a safe environment with friendly people, decent schools, and enough of my needs satisfied. The only thing I wish this place had was more interesting places to go and do things, sights to see, and more wildlife preserves to go visit. I'd like to have more places to practice my favorite hobbies outside, and that would require living in a larger city.
