I honestly love small town atmosphere. It is extremely kids and family friendly because there are often people who go out at night for family walks to their favorite restaurant. It give the small town feel but most of the people there have liberal tendencies. The fire department has wonderful volunteers. The town is part of a great school district and there are always opportunities to work, volunteer, etc. A lot of the businesses around the area readily employ teenagers. The community is tightly knit and extremely kind.

The town is a very beautiful, upscale, farming community with lovely supermarkets and upscale mini-golfing developments. Because of its rural suburban nature, transportation is heavily reliant on driving, with minimum commutes of 20 to 30 minutes into towns such as Princeton and Newtown, PA.
The community in this town is very active and great! Although as a college student I am mostly more concerned with my school information, my parents are very into learning more about the community and we have very warm and comforting neighbors to help us at any time. My little sisters have a group of friends to play with after school, and everyone is very warm in this town. People who live here tend to stay here for a long time.
