I grew up there and it was great! It has a fire station and has a great police department. It is near hospitals and has great schools. Lots of shops and local restaurants that are killer. There are lots of great families in neighborhoods. The whole city encourages healthy living with great parks and trails.
Great place for families. Safe place to live. Active community. Neighbors are wonderful. Schools are amazing. Many activities for kids, adults and families. Target and Walmart with 3 grocery stores. Several clinics and pharmacies. Welcoming community always feel at home. Love living here and meeting all the new residents. Its a great atmosphere. Movie theater, Ymca, etc. Everything that you could ask for in a community. Bunker Hills park is close by for horseback riding, bunker beach, etc.
