Everything is close together enough to be able to walk anywhere you want but cars are still basically needed. Great public schools (trouble kids hate them because of the great deal of security, but if you stay out of trouble you'll love it) from elementary to high school. Visiting the waterfront and walking around Old Town is the best thing to do on a hot summer day. If there's something you're craving, you'll find it in Old Town.

My experience of this is area is pretty good because I have good Neighborhoods, we share our feeling and we do hep one another in worse times . I think this area is good because you see a lot of good neighbors around , also it's good when your near shopping malls or grocery especially for big family's'. One of the best thing is that the school are very never the house our kids can even walk so that's the most best thing in this area.
Bradlee shopping center is a great little hub. It serves as a one stop shop for all of your daily or weekend errand needs. There is The Fresh Market, which is a great grocery store, specializing in organic, more natural food choices. You have plenty of smaller food places like Atlantic Pizza, a unique frozen yogurt place. There are places for women to shop (Dressbarn) to get a massage done. There are also 3 banks in this shopping center, making it convenient for many. There is a Starbucks and a local cafe which has unique pastries to enjoy. It's a great mix of renown chains and little shops.
