How is my community unique?

My home town is honestly the most welcoming and gorgeous place I have ever been to. From the rolling bluffs and breathtaking waterfall to the quaint shops and friendly people, Lanesboro is truly a one of a kind town. Lanesboro is known throughout the state for its beautiful scenery, various activities, and fun atmosphere. No matter what the season, Lanesboro always finds a way to amaze its visitors with its beauty. In the fall, shades of yellows, oranges, and reds completely cover the hills with the changing of the leaves. Hungry hunters fill the restaurants of Lanesboro after a long day searching for that prize buck. The smell of crisp and cool air is all around as guests stroll through town. As the town turns from autumn and heads into winter it is an exciting time. The streets are swarmed with snowmobilers and the trails with snowshoe walkers and cross county skiers. When walking on main street on a lovely snowy night, one can look up on the bluffs and see a great big Christmas tree lit up for the whole town to see. When I see this it makes me fell warm and fuzzy inside just knowing that my town truly sets the standards for how pretty it is. The spring graciously brings warmer weather and pretty little flowers all over the town. The river that runs through the town is now unfrozen and ready to be taken on as summer comes into view. When summer arrives it brings the tourists along with it. The tourists almost more than double the size of my tiny town. The stores become flooded with people anxiously waiting to buy their products, which helps the local businesses out a lot. Many people who come to Lanesboro do so for our summer activities. Just a few of these activities include camping, canoeing, tubing, kayaking, shopping, biking, jogging on the trails, and staying in our famous bed and breakfasts. During the summer Lanesboro has its annual Buffalo Bill Days celebration in August. This is where artists, food vendors, and local distributors gather in the park to share their talents and products. Lanesboro also hosts a parade on the last day of the celebration. This parade is filled with anything from fire trucks and clowns to motorcycle daredevils who do tricks in the parade while riding their bikes. This is a true entertainment for anyone who comes out to join the fun. As you can see, Lanesboro is an amazing town with various components that all come together to make it the timeless town we all know it to be, and I think that’s pretty unique.
