Glad my family moved here. If I didn't want a completely fresh start after college I would move my family here, but otherwise my goal is to live somewhere else but to have the same type of feel my city has. Definitely love the four years I have lived here compared to the 14 in another neighboring city.

Not much crime that I've noticed. Everything is easy going and safe minus the possible coyote sightings recently, but even then I know the police are figuring out ways so they do not attack children or dogs.
All commercial and private gyms available. Yoga and pilates studios around every corner. People very active in this area. Several great hospitals close by and many top quality hospitals/medical centers in the area. I stay active with pilates, yoga and dance. Walking and biking, walking the dog.
