Great schools and a perfect community to raise a family. Lots of open space and good restaurant options in the small downtown area.

I literally love all the things about this place except for the burglary and theft. That is was too high. Otherwise I'd give it a higher rating.
Some of the people can be very money focused. The neighborhood is great as well as the school system. It is a very convenient place to live with grocery stores, pharmacies, and restaurants close by.
