"Instead of wondering when your next vacation is, maybe you should set up a life you don't need to escape from." Author Unknown
There's something about a small town, where you call your butcher and barber by their first names - and they know yours. Where the grade school, clinic and grocery store are just down the street. Where you can play a round of golf in the morning, go fishing and kayaking in the afternoon, and take a walk in the woods in the evening. Sound too good to be true? Come visit us. We'll show you where it's possible.
