    We have never felt unsafe, older children can play outside without worrying about them, police are friendly and very responsive. We have had some break ins recently but that is about it.
    The weather in my area is pretty average. I enjoy it because I get to experience all of the seasons. Depending on the winter, we can get feet, or we can barely get any snow. I tend to lean more towards the feet of snow though because I make the majority of my money by shoveling. I also enjoy the weather in my area because the summers aren't unbearable. It does get hot, but it rarely ever goes over 95 degrees.
    There are good and affordable restaurants around here. We are very close to Philadelphia which opens up doors for even more restaurants and bars. Popular restaurants include Christopher's, Margaret Kuo's, San Nicola, Chipotle, The Classic Diner, Nudy's, Minellas, Xilantro, Jule's Thin Crust Pizza and The Matador.
