It's an okay place to grow up in. The elementary, middle, and high school I attended are both with three blocks of where I live. Grocery stores and parks are close by, as well as night life area and shopping centers with lots of restaurants. There may not be much to do in regards to activities but as a kid, the are provides everything necessary.

When people hear where I'm from, they quickly associate it with crime, but living there for over 19 years I can say that I've never witnessed or experiences any safety and crime issues. There's crime everywhere and I would not say that the area I live in is a magnet for crime and safety issues.
I love the are! Its beautiful, eco friendly, the neighbors are usually nice, and it's a calm yet fun place to live. There are many things to enjoy here.
