Honestly? I grew up here until the age of 13 and returned five years ago to be near my father. He died four years ago and I'm still here at the age of 40. It's a town with enough people to have most of the conveniences. It's heavy on outdoor activities. It's affordable. The people are nice. Yet, having lived in KC, LA, St. Louis, Chicago, nashville, and Atlanta since then, I can't wait to get out of here. It's a blend of urban and rural. The line separating the two is very thin.
