The school here is really great. Also, Chelsea is close to the city without being congested. Coming from a bigger city out of state, it is relaxing and nice. Lots of trees!

There are not many nearby houses so talking to the people that live in my aria is hard. I do my best to find people to socialize with but even then there are not many people.
there are not many things that happen in my town as far as crime I personally feel very safe where I live.
