I have lived in Mays Chapel for 8 years. I feel safe. The community is clean. The local schools are fine. Close enough to major roads, but also nice community for walking and riding bike. Glad I found this place.

I love the area that I grew up in, mostly because I have lived here my whole life, but also because it is pretty close to shops and grocery stores. I do feel like it is a small town and doesn't give me the opportunity to grow and learn about other cultures and ways of life. It is a fairly safe place to live, but I am very health conscious and I believe that there are better communities that would be more supportive in that area.
There have been a number of break-ins in my neighborhood and the surrounding neighborhoods in the past year. There isn't a lot of violence in my area, but there has been some violence toward my co-workers, down the street from my house, by young groups of teens that walk the streets late at night.
