"Small town where everyone knows everyone (and looks out for everyone)."

Plainview a great town to live in if you're wanting that small town feel. Homes are reasonably priced and there are all the normal conveniences one needs if wanting to move out of the big city and into a smaller setting. Local Theater brings people in, in addition to nearby winery and orchards. Just on the outskirts are many very pretty places to visit, hike, fish, etc.
  • Grocery store, gas station, golf course, walking path
  • Everything is within walking distance
  • School pride is strong
  • Not particularly scenic walking/biking areas
  • Job opportunities are limited and high end homes sell slowly
  • Schools are combined which can be a pro or a con
