Canton is Average. It has some crime, but there is no such thing as no crime. The schools are less average though. Some bad experience but okay. Drivers can vary in different areas but they mostly drive well. There is diversity, a lot of it. Everyone is involved! There really isn't any nightlife except for holidays.
This was an incredible town to grow up in, attend school and participate in community events! There is always something to do, and you are near major highways. You can easily escape into nature or head downtown for a concert or some shopping.
