Beautiful upscale town. Nice mom and pop shops. It is an enclave all unto itself.

However, it is not very diverse (racially, economically, or otherwise). Nevertheless, the people are friendly in public and although every affluent, the at not snobby

Ross is a very safe and beautiful town. The people here are all very friendly and it's overall a wonderful place to raise a family. The public school is also great for any kids k-12. Very happy here!! : )
I loved growing up here. I felt surrounded by a supportive community and it was filled with resources.
