A cultural hub in the burbs

Jacob Burns is the big claim to fame and what balances this otherwise seemingly vanilla town. This film theater screens many independent and new releases. The recently developed education center is a boon for children, teens and film buffs. The Farmers Market is the other cultural draw filled with not only local tasty bites and fresh farm food but an outdoor venue with live music - truly bustling in the summer - is an event in itself (continuing indoors in the winter). The many shops and restaurants including the other Black Cow make this a true downtown. Between the dog park and the Starbucks I almost thought I was back in Brooklyn!
