I feel like there are people here who prefer everyone else to be just like them, there is obvious open judgement seen.

I would live in this area for my whole life if I can. There is plenty of things to do, but it is still a relaxed environment that isn't overcrowded.
There is constantly people walking or running around the neighborhood. Most people seem to be healthy.
