It depends a lot on the jail. Like an urban city jail will not be the same as a small town jail. Overall, local jails not usually bad. It's just boring and you can't leave. If it's a small town jail the people will be pretty normal. You wouldn't know the difference between them and regular people you meet. An urban city jail might be a little more hard core, but still not bad. They won't bother you or anything.
Just be yourself and don't worry about it. Talk to people. Play cards. Take naps. Do whatever to pass the time.
The food may suck or it may be good. Some of the best hamburgers I ever had were in jail. In a small town jail they probably won't have their own food preparation, so it'll probably be catered or takeout form some local place. The coffee will probably suck though. Breakfast will probably be something like donuts, which you dunk in the coffee to sweeten it with the sugar from the donuts. It'll still taste like shit though. But drinking shitty coffee is not as boring as sitting there doing nothing, so it's something to do.
The other people in a local jail will probably be there for minor stuff. Not likely to be felons or anything.1
