Health & Medical
Small town life is definitely less stressful than a major metropolitan
Average commute times to work average just over 20 minutes here. In other words, a beautiful environment, great climate and numerous outdoor recreational opportunities, makes it easier to stay healthy. It’s a fact that sunshine makes people feel healthier and improves your outlook on everything. After living here 10 years, I can tell you that it’s great to wake up to a warm climate and sunshine almost year round.
