I love my neighborhood. It's a quiet street where there are kids that play sometimes, you can sit on your front porch and enjoy a quiet day, and exercising around the neighborhood is safe and comfortable. I live in a mid-lower class neighborhood but the quality of homes and businesses in and around our neighborhood reflect a middle class area. Our area is generally clean, except for a few areas. My neighborhood also seems to have some diversity, which is awesome!

I honestly can't describe in words how amazing our bar and restaurant scene is here. There is SO much good food for so cheap! And don't get me started on the alcohol. Its not just bourbon here, but it is certainly a specialty. Mixed well drinks will run you no more than $4, and a solid cocktail shouldn't be more than $12. We taste bourbon here like California tastes wine.
There have been a number of robberies in my neighborhood, but my house has never been affected. When we first moved in, someone broke into my dad's car, but that was over 10 years ago. It seems that there isn't much crime at all, but it's still a lowkey issue that is at the back of our minds.
