    Living in this vicinity has allowed for a magnificent blending of cultures from around the world. The area of West Grove, Landenberg and Avondale create family oriented cultures, in which values and education are exemplified. I would absolutely choose to live here again, given the beautiful scenery around me, which shows the country side in may areas. However, there is a town-like feeling, with a plethora of small shops, food stores, and malls around which is extremely helpful. I hope to see more nature promoting events, including the emphasis for recycling and planting.
    Great little town. Small and isolated enough, though the neighbors are friendly. Plenty of places to run, and enough stores around the area for groceries or basic errands. Very safe during the day. Not recommended to go out at night due to weather, winding back roads, and lots of deer/wildlife.
    Safety in my area has always been a sole focus for the community. The police and enforcement officers are clearly aware of the children and family environment, and will respond in an accordingly way, given the situation. Crimes, therefore, are not a common thing. Police in my town are often seen and will maintain vigilance for ultimate safety.
