    This area is and will continue to be very family oriented. Families partake in many outdoor activities together and there is a positive atmosphere. Personally, I would not choose to live here again, only because I want to experience something new, but perhaps I would move back after living somewhere else for a few years.
    The home owner's association leaves the neighborhood with a lot of space to do what they want with their homes. The neighborhood does not look tacky, yet isn't too uniform. It is unique.
    While the police here are very reliable, crime is still evident. Our home was robbed earlier this month along with another home nearby. My hope is that we have higher security in the future.
