overall Breckenridge is a Good Place to live. It is conveniently located in Mid County. It has a small municipality. The neighborhood shows it has pedophiles near by, so if you have kids be aware. My teenage daughter tells me she sees grown men whistling at her. The houses seem to be very small in this area.

Well it's ok. Not a completely safe neighborhood but I can say many incidents around here are targeted and rarely happen. There aren't shooting everyday or nothing like that, but I have heard gunshots but I wouldn't say it was serious or someone was getting hurt, probably just someone playing around with the gun, shooting birds or something. It's pretty safe, but crime can happen here. Nothing too violent.
There are alot of parks in this area and there's a highschool with workout facilities. I see alot of people walking. I wouldn't say this is an area where everyone is mentally nor physically healthy, but it's not terrible. Just normal people.
