Truck Stop Town

Truck Stop Towns have their purposes but this is definitely not a place to settle down. There are plenty of hospitals and clinics so there is plenty of health care. I know there are quite a few people who retired here because the cost of living is very good. There are some box stores, so you can always find anything you need. There are small events that happen periodically, e.g. balloon shows, fall fests, craft fairs, car shows (actually there are lot of these). The winery closed (the only decent place to get a glass of wine). There are locally owned restaurants but they aren't very good (aside from the gyro place, but that's only open for lunch). There just really isn't much. The bare minimum. Not a terrible place to be but if you like to try new things, do new things, prepare to be underwhelmed.
