The neighborhood I live in is quiet and tranquil. I am near a busy road so it's convenient to get where I need to go, and there are plenty of grocery stores, restaurants, and entertainment venues nearby. I walk often throughout the side roads here and have always felt safe. There aren't sidewalks on them but the roads behind me have little traffic and nice neighbors that don't mind you walking through their grass. :) I do not use public transportation but see many bus stops and frequently see the buses in town, so they seem to be pretty accessible. All nearby establishments have ample parking spaces. This is a great place to live and raise a family!
