Crime & Safety
We moved a few years ago because we wanted a walkable family friendly small town and we are very happy with our choice. We love strolling to the Treehouse for coffee or Desserts by Design for brownie cupcakes. We can walk to schools, the lake, the baseball field and the library. We didn't want a home in a development where our children's school friends would all be a drive away. Audubon is the kind of place where kids still knock on doors for their friends and everyone gathers at the high school for fireworks. We feel we made the best choice for our family.
Audubon is a great town for starting a family, because of its safe neighborhood feel and the tremendous schooling. Audubon also has many great opportunities for young children to become successful in sports. The town has organizations for many sports starting at a young age. For example, the little league baseball that has helped many young boys to get to the State Champion level; Audubon High School Baseball has won 12 State titles. Another example is Joe Flacco, the quarterback of the Baltimore Ravens who won not only the 47th NFL Super Bowl but also the MVP of the game lived in Audubon. Aside from all the athletic achievements, Audubon also was the hometown of 3 military men who received the Medal of Honor. Being able to live in this small town as a child has helped not only me, but others as well gain friendship, athletic, community, and service characteristics.
Audubon is a cute small town with some great family activities like July 4th fireworks and parade, Halloween parade, and Christmas parade. It's an affordable option for families. The sports leagues have been great for our kids as well. We really like the town.
