The area is quiet and nice to live in. However the city keeps running businesses out of town and makes it hard to find a job in town for students. We have a nice park that we can play basketball in and take kids to play.
Review Alexandria
There are not many concerns about safety in our town. Once in a while we will get a stealing spree by a few people but it usually does not go beyond that.
Alexandria is a very small town. They do not have very many employment opportunities.
