The area is pretty spread out so you'd most likely need a car to get around places. It's mostly suburban so traffic isn't bad and the noise is usually quiet. Driving around locally is great since there aren't many crazy drivers, however, there isn't a lot of public transportation so if you do take it to a destination you most likely will have to walk a while to actually get to where you want to go.

This are is the best place I have eve lived. I have never seen so many kind people who are always lending a hand in whatever my family and I do. If I could choose to live here again I would choose to do so in a heartbeat. I would not think twice if I got to live here again. This are is one of the best areas in the country. The future of this area will be the same with kind people always being there and local businesses setting up small shops.
I love where I live, I have lived here since birth and it is constantly becoming a better place to grow up.
