    There are plenty of workout facilities, but I have noticed overall that most of the residents are overweight or obese.
    There are sidewalks by most streets. Traffic normally stops for pedestrians. There is ample public transportation.You really can't walk to many places.
    During the summer months there may be something going on once every couple of weeks like a fireman's carnival or ethnic festival. They also have a huge motorcycle rally known as Thunder in the Valley.
