      Inexpensive living, great outdoor
      I am retired with pension income, working part time. This very nice and affordable area. I donot spend too much on transportation, housing - my living expenses are low. Area is green with good parks around. Very nice people as well.

      Great small town to live in Midwest
      Nice quiet town to raise a family or to retire. Low cost housing/rent, good schools, great community. Great option for a family on fixed income.
