My area is close to a big town but outside enough that if you want to go somewhere quickly theres not a whole lot of options for different/nice food, shopping, etc.

I've always lived here. I love it. Never thought different.
Police are around if you need them and are very helpful. I haven't hear about crime ratings going up.
