I grew up here, so I do like it a lot. I live in a pretty safe area with great choices for schools. I would definitely live here again. Other than living in a college dorm, I have never lived anywhere else in the country so I can not rate my overall experience in comparison. I believe this area will do well in the future.
I have not had any bad experiences regarding crime and safety so I have no immediate concerns.
I like living in this area because it is close to everything and I have options.
