    It's peaceful, safe, has good schools, good people, everything is close, there's so much to do, and it feels very much like home. The future looks bright.
    Review Buckeystown
    There's not a lot of crime in the area, but I see cops on patrol constantly and I feel very safe and feel like they would respond very quick in an emergency.
