Where I live is great because it's a small town, so everybody knows each other. We have a small outdoor outlet mall where students like to hangout and get pizza. The people here are friendly and are always willing to help each other out. It's a very safe place and I trust the people around me.
I love the scenery and the places you can hike and go fro walks. The town has a lot to offer and is continually growing to better everyone's lives. Living here is excellent
