It's a nice area and there are a lot of children in the neighborhood which is nice for families. A new high school was just built and they're working on other schools. Some crime occurs in the area and there are several sexual predators but you'll get little flyers saying when they move into the area. A shopping center and several fast food places are right down the road in walking distance. Overall, it's nice for a starter home and raising children.

Local business (Easton Mall) is great for shopping all the most popular stores with prices ranging from affordable to extravagant. Also has activities like comedy shop, movie theatre, and game rooms.
Our immediate community has turned over quite frequently over the past 10 years. Many foreclosures, but the more recent homeowners appear to want to be here for the long haul.
