I have lived here all of my life and its still good but once the older people go it will turn into a starter neighborhood. Everything is nearby from things to have fun at, restaurants, grocery stores, and gas stations all within a 3-5 minute drive. You are able to walk to the high school from my house in 5 minutes which is really convenient. Most people around the neighborhood are friendly and helpful. There haven't been any bad things to happen around my neighborhood since I remember. It can be quiet but once warm weather hits all the kiddos go outside and run the neighborhood, most are respectful.

Hamilton county is very close to numerous colleges. Jobs are a variety of work places. There are plenty of shopping place ranging from expensive to dirt cheap products. Plenty of places to have fun. There are parks, arcades, soccer fields, baseball fields, and everything in between. In a way, it is kind of like a sample of the entire US. So come on down Y'all.
As a teenager, I've really come to appreciate the area I've grown up in. There are several parks for young kids, plenty of beginner job opportunities, and pretty much anything else you could ask for. If it isn't here, it's close by. I've met all my life long friends in this area through our sense of community.
