There are some little pockets of residential areas where it's very quiet and peaceful. Kids feel free to run around on their bikes and whatnot. There are a few busier streets with all your basic stores and a few not so mainstream ones also- a cd store (who knew those still existed?), a bakery for pets, a surprisingly well-stocked dollar store, etc.

Nice little town with great neighbors that look out for one another. Great school district and police department with very low volume of crime and other types of illegal activities.
Nice neighborhood! They have a huge park that hosts lots of soccer games and baseball games which is pretty cool
