My community is family friendly. We have several parks in our area for kids, trails to walk your dogs, local businesses, bigger retail stores, etc.. We have home owners dues every year. These go towards maintaining the sidewalks, signs, flower beds, and trails. We also have a strict covedent so home owners have to abide by certain rules (keep lawn up, no cars parked on the streets, no campers, RV's, etc...). It's nice because your neighborhood looks nice, but also annoying because you have to ask the "Homeowners board" if you can paint your house a certain color, or if you can put a shed in your back yard... They can tell you no and you have to just suck it up! That is the part I do not like...

There are nearby parks, shopping centers, and public transportation hubs. You are far enough from the freeway to avoid the majority of rush hour traffic, but close enough to enjoy the benefits of a quick commute! Anything you could want to experience - from beaches, to farmer's markets, to wineries, and even busy cities - is within reasonable driving distance. It is the perfect place to live and still feel like you have access to amazing weekend getaways!
I live in a nice neighborhood. I guess one would consider it the suburbs. We are within a couple miles of grocery stores, gas stations, schools, banks, doctors, and the freeway. It's in a great location! The only reason I didn't rate it "great" is because I think our next door neighbors are jerks. So... Other then them, I give the place where I live a big thumbs up.
