Andover is a very friendly community with little to no violence, which is wonderful. The center of town which I live up the street from is always booming with people and allows people to walk around through the shops at leisure. There are also many different unique shops that have great food, along with your traditional dunkin donuts and McDonalds. At the moment their isn't much I would change at all their is wild life in my backyard which I love as well and over all the community where I live is very quiet and peaceful.

Andover has a lot of local dining options and things to do! I would recommend getting a coffee at Cafe Nero, exploring shops downtown, and grabbing a bite to eat at La Rossa. The school system is constantly improving and on the rise.
The schools here are excellent and there are a lot of resources in town such as the library, youth center, senior center, and more. However, I find that many people here (not all) are rich and privileged which isn't necessarily a bad thing but a lot of people have a hard time acknowledging their privilege which I suppose isn't specific to Andover.
