    Pella

    There is a good chance that I will be moving to the Pella area soon. For my fellow fanatics that live in and around the area, should I live in Pella or a small community near it? How expensive is real estate in and around Pella? Any helpful information is appreciated. Thanks in advance

    Don't know much about communities around it...don't really know much about Pella, but I do know it's really beautiful. Have heard great things about the place.

    The Dutch, especially Doc, are bad news.

    He's right. Pella may not be the place for you if your name is Jose

    If you plan on mowing your lawn on Sunday, you probably should live in a surrounding community.

    This is pretty much true. All of the decent Dutch people stayed in Europe. The rest have been nothing but trouble (e.g, Doc, Bob VanderPlaats, and much of South Africa)

    Pella is a clean and beautiful town. as doc said, don't plan on mowing on Sunday. Some of the surrounding communities are alright, but I think pella is a better place to live IMO.

    If you ever move to Pella, be sure to ask everyone you meet if they're Dutch and if they know this famous rudder that you've been hearing so much about.

    Are you Dutch? If you are, Pella is a nice little town. If you are not, may the force be with you.

    I'm an Irishman who loves to drink. Pella may not be the right place for me
