Great place. Crime is virtually non-existent, barring the occasional h****n user accidentally offing themselves. Schools are nearly brand new. Not much to do, which is part of the appeal! Full of many down-to-Earth people. Not for city-slickers!

Sycamore Ice Cream is a great place to grab some summertime snacks!
