A community is only as strong as its education system.

After all, today's students are tomorrow's leaders. You don't have to go far to find many of the best colleges and universities in the nation and award-winning elementary and secondary schools; in fact, you have an abundance of choices.

We take our fun with a side of season, history and landscape. We're a diverse group with lots to do inside and out. Dine downtown in a courtyard under a summer sky, or stretch out on a blanket for an outdoor concert by the lake. See a touring Broadway show in a historic theater or take a hay ride out to the apple orchard. Around here, fun comes in many forms... and sometimes farms.
