Fairfield is a very close community. Almost everybody knows each other. We have parades for all of the local sports teams and little events at the schools where everyone is welcome to attend! It's a great place to start a family also because there are 3 elementary school just in our little town, and there are also a couple strip malls with very popular stores, 2 major grocery stores, fast food, and an outlet mall.

I love Fairfield because it really give you that happy medium. Its not to boujee and stuck up, yet its is still a clean and safe area. It has everything you need within a ten minute drive which is AMAZING! Moving to Texas from the opposite side of the US, I would completely recommend Fairfield and i would do it again in a heartbeat.
Fairfield is a safe and diverse neighborhood. Everything is here. It is like a mini town. There are restaurants, a mall, offices, hospitals, stores, and more. The schools are some of the top schools with good teachers. There is lots of nature with many lakes, walking paths, and parks.
