I love this town but it is not without its challenges. The schools are not great but the rent/mortgages are still high. A lot of people know each other and it is fun to go to the local coffee spots and see friends. There have been too many high speed accidents along the boulevard lately. It feels like home and is not super dangerous but there has been theft and there are quite a few "street dwellers" who abuse drugs and can become violent. Most of the time they mind their own, but it can be scary when drugs are involved.
Having just moved here about a year ago, I have learned to explore Sunland and it's surrounding adventures! It's a "small town" feel. There are a lot of people stuck in their old ways so that is a bit challenging for new businesses to come in and flourish.
