The town is like a small city; outstanding in many ways. Steeped in history, built impressively, its citizens and businesses progressive, affluent and generous, its socio-political structure exemplary. It has noble traditions, like its exceptional practice of charitable giving and donating, visible from everyday life stories to plaques posted everywhere from lampposts to benches, from the library to its highly-rated hospital. The atmosphere could rival a similar-sized European town; it’s a pleasant blend of small town characteristics and big city groove. Wellbeing is obvious everywhere, from fancy restaurants and live-music pubs to inner town supermarkets exceeding any expectation (including that of your wallet), to fashionable boutiques and a noticeably high number of very expensive cars. Architectural wonders abound: old, ornate historical buildings, skyscraper-like office towers, modern condos and churches.
