It is nice for a family who wants a quiet life in a suburb, but not for people who like a lot of action and excitement. Families with small children are perfect for this town because there are schools and parks very close. One thing that I would like to change is for the town to have more things to do for older kids and adults. There are a few restaurants, and there used to be an ice cream shop which is now closed.

There is very little crime in the area. I feel safe here and in my school. I have no concerns about police, as I think they would come quickly if I called them.
I really like the local businesses around me because the people that run them are so friendly and they actually care about you. Most of the businesses have been kept in the families for many years also.
