Great for wealthy families who can spare time to drive their kids around, otherwise SUPER BORING! Crime has gone up as well, 4 of our neighbors have been broken into in the last 3 years.
Generally feels safe, with good schools and a nice atmosphere. Very suburban. Lately increasing nonviolent crime, and historically minimal police presence, but neighbors are vigilant.
