Mt. Horeb has flown under the radar as a great place to live for years, but now it's official. Madison Magazine rated it the #1 Madison suburb. The magazine looked at things such as population, crime rate, property taxes, housing, appreciation, culture, schools and government services.
If someone asked me why Mt. Horeb is a great place to live I would give you the following top 3 reasons:
- Schools: AMAZING teachers and low class sizes have equaled a great educational experience for kids
- Rec Department: Parent volunteers play a large part in the great sport/activity offering from our rec department. Soccer, baseball, gymnastics, and swimming programs are not only cheap--they are excellent.
- Sense of community: While hard to measure on a day to day basis, certain community events like the lighting of the fire house Christmas tree, Relay for Life, and the high school Homecoming make you feel like you are a part of something really cool.
Of course, I have kids so I'm looking at this town through those eyes. Feel free to weigh in on why you think Mt. Horeb is a great place to live!
