The general atmosphere is great, I'd consider retiring there.

It's a quaint little community where neighbors passing by wave hello. There's not a whole lot of options for entertainment and the library is inactive because there's not a whole lot of volunteers to run it.
The crimes are few and far in between. The general safety is high.
