I like that it's a growing town that's incorporating more commercial businesses to attract people. While it still has the appeal of a small town with small town businesses and a slowed down way of life, there are still name brand businesses and food chains scattered around the town that allows people to stay close to home and still get the joys of a bigger city type of life style.

I grew up in Norwalk and recently moved back to my home town. It is lovely and the neighborhood is developing nicely.
It's a good place to raise a family. It's safe, has a good school system, and definitely caters to families. However there isn't much to do and if given the choice I would probably choose to live elsewhere.
