If you like big houses, big yards, and good space between neighbors to respect your property, this is the right place! People are very friendy, but they will respect your privacy, you will never find anyone at your garden or house without an invitation. The only hing I would love more tha this, is sidewalks.

I only have the concern of there is a good sized police force, but sometimes they will go for the easy targets instead of the ones who need to be stopped. Especially on the roads.
I love where I live. The people are amazing and we're all very close. God is important and so is supporting our government and whoever is appointed as an official. I love my country and would gladly lay my life down for a fellow American. There are many places in the world that are not safe to life in; however, I would classify my neighborhood as a rather safe community. We take care of each other and that is important in today's time and age.
