I am a city girl! We've always moved around, but this was my second time living in a surburan area. I didn't attend school in the neighborhood, so I relied on public transportation to get me to and from. That was difficult because there are fewer routes and the schedule doesn't run 24/7. The neighbors themselves are all very nice people. They are family orientated and working parents, I always saw them outside together during the summer. It's very clean on the streets and there aren't many people wandering around that don't live or visit frequently. The trails are everywhere, they're very scenic and they are very safe. The diversity is fairly poor, we are the only family of color living in our direct neighborhood, but we've never run into any issues with it. Roseville is great for a quieter more intimate living area!

I like living in Roseville I went to the nearby elementary school but not the high school or middle school. The school districts are okay but they are not the best. We have poor safety my neighbors once got their mailbox broken into, I have been followed home from my bus stop by this creppy guy, we have had the cops come to our neighborhood to deal with some neightbors. But besides that it's a nice town with a skating rink and a lake that's nice for swimmming and boating. During the summer time the lake is full of people. Me and my family take our boat out and go tubing.
I really like the variety of grocery & convenient stores that are available throughout Roseville, makes it easy to commute there and get what you need to get when you need it! The neighborhood is filled with a variety of occupants but mostly families with children seem to reside in Roseville. This makes for a safe and positive environment to raise children. Como Lake is located very close to Roseville and it provides a variety of options for family outings. I wish the area was more diverse when it comes to people from different ethnic & racial backgrounds. Too many stoplights too!
