In general, what are peoples' priorities in this city? For example, do lives revolve around work, family, socializing, sports, etc.?
Community is very important. They have done a great deal to make Main Street a cozy little place where people can stroll around and visit antique shops.
It is a slightly wealthy community. Since I live outside of town, it seems as if people do not talk unless they already know each other.
