I like that all of my grocery stores, gas stations and any other necessities are nearby! I live close to the airport and a few parks. The school systems are very good. I live off of a main road so my street tends to be busy. There doesn’t seem to be much crime where I live. My neighborhood seems safe and my neighbors are great. Some housing communities can be pricey, but it seems worth it!

I've lived in North Canton my whole life. It has nice schools, nice stores and restaurants, and one can easily drive up to Cleveland for a day and come back which I really like. But North Canton is a bubble. For the most part, the people that live here are the people that have always lived here. It lacks diversity and things such as school sports revolve completely around who you know. Which I guess one could say is just a typical suburb, but it's still something that sucks. I will mention that it is quite safe, but that leads to our excessive number of cops becoming bored and pulling you over for going 4mph over the speed limit or leaving you a $5 parking ticket for parking your car on the street over night. It gets old.
It's a safe town that's very family friendly. You definitely should have a car to live here. The people are generally friendly. The cost of living is much lower than Boston, MA, but the pay is also significantly lower. There are few local events so most people go to Akron or Kent for events.
