    It is a very nice, small suburban town. I think it is excellent to be able to raise a family here. It is very diverse and gives anyone that sense of community.

    Lawrence is a very good neighborhood for all ages. I would like to see it have more nightlife options.
    We have an alarm system and a large dog, who is very visible. There have been recent vehicle break-ins, home burglaries, and attempted burglaries.
