There are a lot of fast food restaurants near my house, which are usually kept up pretty well. However there are not very many choices of nicer restaurants in the area, if any at all. Also the grocery stores are couple miles from my area so it can be a hassle to even get to the grocery store. The grocery stores that are close to my neighborhood aren't big ones so they usually don't have everything we usually need.

Wichita is alright compared to other places. Quiet, but the neighbors will befriend you. The bad and good areas are defined they vary block to block.
I have never had an experience with crime but I have heard of cars getting stolen or broken into. There's always something on the news, but the crime usually stays in certain areas of the city.
