Houses are very well kept and in nice, friendly areas. Houses are normally large enough for families and have nice yards for kids and pets.

People care about their property and take care of their things. There really is not any crime or vandalism.
There are always people around. Everyone knows each other so news travels fast. It is a nice place to live but is a very small town.
