I have lived in this area my entire life. From a personal experience the school system was amazing giving you every chance to succeed and always broadening horizons. This is area is littered with malls, restaurants, movie theaters, bowling alleys, and out door activities there is always something to do.

There is crime here drugs, theft, casualty. The police have done a good job cleaning up and this area is much better then when I started living here
You can find many part times jobs here & few full times in big business. Overall the opportunities are many but not great ones. There many for mostly students for are looking for part time jobs for summer or vacations.
