Adel Township Reviews

It is a great place to live because there is such a welcoming community. You can live in the country and still be very close to the nearest town. This is a place where morals and personal values are still held to be very important. The atmosphere is always pleasant in this small town of Iowa. People wave and smile at one another on the road and are generally thoughtful drivers. I believe it is best to grow up in a place like this because it helps you grow without a ton of influence from the craziness of the outside world. It is calm and quiet and allows for personal advancement, unlike a big city such as New York would allow. I would always choose to live here above a big area or city. Although I do love to travel, this will always be my home. I believe in the future kids will continue to benefit from the opportunities of this location through small schools with strong academics, sports, and the quiet tone of a loving town they will always have in their heart.

In this area, I believe the crime rate is very low and this stems back to the type of town this is and the people it produces. I always have felt safe here. This is a place where people leave their vehicle running while going inside the local gas station. This is a place where kids walk by themselves in the summer and after school to get from place to place. Crime here is almost unheard of. When it is heard of, it is always for smaller crimes, never amounting to very much. No place is perfect when it comes to their crime history but I believe we have some of the lowest crime action seen today. I really have no concerns, in fact the only time there seems to be much extra trouble is when outsiders enter our small town. They quickly realize though, the kind of town it is.
