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!

My neighborhood, in general, is extremely quiet as it consists of many elders. The neighborhood is quiet, all the kids, me, grew up. You barely see any teenagers anymore, especially during Halloween. I would love to see more diversity in Roseville. We live extremely close to the mall, Target, Walmart and many local restaurants. Overall, it's a great place to live. Our neighbor is a bit rude as we are an ethnicity though.
Roseville is very quiet and residential. I live in an apartment complex here and feel safe. It seems like a great place to raise a family (and I see tons of families around). It has some cute parks and nice areas to walk through, especially if you have a dog. It's also fairly close to Como Park. The Rosedale mall is nearby, which has some decent food options, but there are other restaurants around the area. There's no nightlife here (go to the city). This isn't a good place to live if you rely on public transportation either, but if you have a car, it doesn't matter much.
