Learn about living here

A lifestyle envied by many.
We don't have a rush hour. A traffic jam is three pickups and a Chevy. Kids walk to school in safety and "How's it going?" is a heart- felt question. Travel, good food and fine wine are as much a part of our culture as are sports, a good education, hard work and plenty of play time.

Let's drill down -
