I'm in Chattanooga, and it is a wonderful place to live. We have beautiful lakes, surrounded by mountains. Excellent aquarium, museums, nice restaurants, and one of the best small theatre groups in the south. How about your town?

 I live in a village of 295 people.  Main street has a post office, gas station/ convenience store, butcher shop, bank and ag store to buy farm equipment.  We are surrounded by a state forest where many people go to camp and hike.  We have a band shell/stage in the park and an area to cook and serve food there as well.  In warmer months we have community meals such as pancake breakfasts, hog roasts, etc.  We also play movies on the wall of the band shell and bring our lawn chairs and popcorn down to watch together.  Evey july we have a street dance to raise money for the fire department.  

We have a charter school here that there is a waiting list for if you do not live in town.  Over 400 children attend!  Its a really good school so people are willing to drive.  

I never lock my doors.  When I am gardening or working on a project the neighbors come out and help.  I go to their houses to help them too.  Living here is like going back in time.  We still have church socials and ladies luncheons.  When kids trick or treat they go into the house and are offered lemonade and home baked treats.  

One of the largest malls in america is less than an hour away so we still have everything available to us that a large city has.  Target is in a town 10 minutes away, along with all the typical things you find in a suburb.  When I go home at night however I am where its truely a community.

I live in a city of 60,000 people, but with a small town attitude. Everyone knows everyone pretty much you cant go anywhere without seeing someone you know anyway! We have a very low crime rate, beautiful parks and many linear trails. The schools here are very nice and education is a priority here. Many programs that get cut elsewhere have seemed to stick around here which is awesome!
