I have lived in the area for around 4 years now. Love how the schools are in close proximity to home; no more than a 5 minute drive. The movies, mall, and places to eat are also extremely close and the neighborhood are very family orientated. I would say the one down side to living out here is the commute, especially if you are going into downtown area. On a good day with good traffic, the drive is around 35-40 minutes. However, if you are leaving during traffic hour, expect to be sitting in your car for at least an hour.

My family and I have lived in this area for almost 2yrs now. This is our first home since we have moved from California. This area is really good for the young crowd like myself. There's plenty of bars and restaurants to enjoy and a mall less than a mile away. We have a hospital in a one mile radius and a lot of grocery stores as well. Even though this is a great neighborhood to be in, crime is still present. We have heard of numerous thefts taking place in the last few months and that's only our apartment building. Who knows what other crimes have happened in the subdivision close by. Everyday there's a fear in our mind that what if our house is next to be robbed.
Has unfortunately become extremely congested as well as increased crime both theft and violent, surges of vagrants and panhandlers. I drive a bit further now without complaint.
