I can't wait to get out of here, however I could see how some people would like it. It's too crowded and it's just building after building, house after house. The best part of this town is the weather and beach.

It's very safe here. If you go a couple miles east or southwest, it gets a worse, but overall I feel safe and never have to worry about break-ins or criminals.
The neighborhood seems fairly safe. No major crimes.
