Small Town Living
Just think of all the glorious perks of small town living. First off, Somerset has a population of around 11,500. This means there’s no heavy traffic. Ever. Since you’ll be required by SpecialtyCare to live within a 30-minute radius of the hospital, no traffic comes in handy, especially when you’re searching for a home. Speaking of homes, whether you rent or buy, it’s going to be significantly cheaper than the US average. The average cost of a home in Somerset is $120,500.

There’s always Serendipity at the Orange Door, a made-from-scratch restaurant downtown. Speaking of downtown, how about hitting up a bar in downtown with no wait time? Tap on Main Brewing and Friends Sports Bar are around for you to get your drink on.

It’s so large that an even has an island state park in the middle of it. General Burnside Island State Park is surrounded by the lake and offers golfing, camping, and lake recreation.
