I would choose to live here for the rest of my life. It's small and quiet and not much every happens in the area. Plenty of space to raise kids and have pets.

Farther away from town there is little to no crime. The closer to town you move there is a bit more crime but nothing ever too serious.
We do not have any extreme weather events. Its nice because we can enjoy all of the seasons without having to deal with their downfalls.
