    I've enjoyed growing up in this area because we can play in the streets and go play in the woods like the older days. It's nice to not have to worry about crime and theives like in the city. Also, in my neighborhood, everyone knows everyone. It's nice to know your neighbors and go out and play with them when you're younger. You also can carpool with them into town or to school.
