I enjoy where I live, because it's in between two very different worlds that I can get to in less than 15 minutes. Here in the suburbs of Kansas City live is stagnant, quiet, and friendly. It;s a very nice place to be, but what if I wanted something a little more calm and serene -- or even more rugged? I can always go down to Smithville and enjoy some back woods fun. The lakes and rivers around here are also great places to go to. On the flip side, what if I were feeling more adventurous, and I wanted to explore some of our cites great architecture? I could just head down town to union station, which is also hardly fifteen minutes from where I live. Where I live is a sort of bridge between two different worlds, both of which I have known well.

I've never felt like I was in a situation that the police couldn't reach me. If anything, I feel safe around my neighbors. Everyone one gives whatever effort they can into making sure we're all safe and happy. The dogs in the neighborhood are our number one security. If ever something were to go wrong, I would probably call for a dog, or neighbor before I call for a police man. That is not to say that the police aren't responsive in my neighborhood, but to commend my neighbors for being so protective of each other.
The area is quite nice. There isn't too much traffic or too many people. I personally like the city life, so it's not that appealing to me if I had the choice to move back, but it is very affordable. The main thing I wish this area had were national parks or some amazing natural landmark. The shopping area down the road used to be run down for the past 10 years, but now it is beginning to develop and is bringing in more businesses. Nothing is too far away, downtown is pretty close, and the lake is about 20 minutes away.
