Orchard park is pleasant suburb outside of Buffalo. The town is very family friendly with an abundance of upper-middle class neighborhood developments. I never feel unsafe walking around the town of Orchard Park. There are some good places to get food including Mangia's, Spot Coffee, Taffy's, and Duff's. The public school system is top quality.

Orchard Park is a nice town to live. You're able to have some hustle and bustle that comes with a city but also have the nice greenery that doesn't always accompany city life. Plus if you're a football fan, the stadium is right around the corner.
Orchard Park was a great town to grow up in. It was safe and there were a lot of children my age around to play with. The "town" is up and coming with a lot of new local businesses, leaving a lot of options for employment at a young age. Cost of living is expensive compared to other nearby neighborhoods.
