Overall this area was great, I have never felt unsafe whether I am at home or outside. The only thing I did not like about this area is that there is barely anything to do for entertainment, and you can't get anywhere by walking. You must drive to get somewhere, and this lifestyle just was not the best for me.

The area is very suburban but spread out. Neighbors don't mingle here as much as in other areas. Most of the children young. The houses are big but costly and nothing particularly special. The lifestyle is mediocre.
I have never felt unsafe in this area. The roads maintenance is poorly done but otherwise everything was great.
