Very clean, quiet area. Lot of family style homes in a general area easy to get on free way and close to shopping
Because it's across from the college campus, there is a large turnover in the apartment housing. Still, the neighborhood has a sense of permanency and pride in ownership due to the nice mixture of older neighborhoods. It's a good mixture. It's a very walking, biking friendly town. You can leave your belongings on the front porch without much fear of them being stolen.
