You have your fair share of malls and chain restaurants, but nothing exceptional. Plenty of parks and libraries as well. The schools are good and the crime rate is low, so it's a nice place to raise a family - safe, albeit boring.

Unfortunately there isn't much in the way of culture or nightlife unless you Read More
