I personally enjoy living in the area that I live in. My neighbors are nice. I live in a clean neighborhood. There's little to no criminal activity in my neighborhood.
My area is improving but being from New York originally I feel limited. The quality of products in my opinion are below the regional standard. I don't know who the buyers are but the clothing, healthy food options, entertainment, and restaurants and very below average. I would love to have more quality options to not keep going to the same places all the time. Only a hand full of budget friendly, quality restaurants. Almost all of the decent high end places are on the beach. My family and I drive to Mobile, AL to Ruth Chris( the Destin,Fl location is a 6 out of 10)
The crime in my area isn't that bad at all. I rarely hear of anything bad happening in my neighborhood.
