Perfect City

Geneseo is a small town along Interstate 80. Geneseo has a very small crime rate, but enough infrastructure to live comfortably. Geneseo has some very nice stores (especially Fareway), a hospital, it's own High School, and many nice areas.

Geneseo has a variety of stores. The best store in town for groceries is Fareway, located right along US Route 6. Geneseo also has a Walmart, but Geneseo's Walmart is much nicer than one would expect. Also in Geneseo, there is a McDonald's, a Hardee's, a Culver's, a Pizza Hut, several BP gas stations, a Shell or two, two Casey's general store locations, and several other restaurants and gas stations.

Hammond-Henry Hospital, located on the northern edge of Geneseo, is not OSF Saint Francais, but is still a good, safe hospital. If one needs something that Hammond-Henry does not offer, then the Quad Cities are very close-about a fifteen minute drive (following speed limits).

Geneseo's High School does very well in almost every sport and club, but often has to travel a ways for away games/meets (such as L/P, Ottawa, Sterling, etc). The downside to Geneseo's High School are the students from other towns.

As said above, Geneseo is also close to the Quad Cities, which has just about everything, but is far enough away to stay out of the crap that one would get in a larger area. Yes, many people might consider people from Geneseo to be "arrogant," but the residents just do not want crap. How can you blame them? Just follow the laws, try to stay out of trouble, and do not make yourself into an outcast. If you follow those things, then you will be fine.

To summarize this whole review: Geneseo is a GREAT town.
