The area where I live in is calming and not too loud. We do live near a university, but it isn't too noisy. I like how everything is close by but not too close where you can walk 2 minutes and get to your destination. There are some things near where I live and if you want a more lively environment, you can drive 10 minutes to port jeff near the dock. It is always full of people and is a great place to hang out.
I think this town needs more attractions, or at least more advertised attractions. There are things to do but if you are not familiar with the town it leaves you searching online for things that are no longer present in the town.
This place is practically crime free. Whenever anything remotely criminal happens, everyone is talking about it since it is such a rare occurrence.
