i will be the first to admit that if you are a young guy looking for naked women on the beach and excitement my town is the wrong place for you but if you are just a family looking for a great place to raise a family with good schools, no crime, no income tax,top medical facilities and reasonable living expenses it is a good place to live. it was voted the number one city to live in back a few years ago by forbes or money magazine. to be honest it has some drawbacks also. it has lower wages,cold winters,it is sometimes called the bible belt of the north. different strokes for different folks. we dont have an income tax but they stick you for property tax. expect to pay 3500 a year on a 300k house.
