Salisbury is a relatively safe and quiet neighborhood. There are nice places around, but you need a car to get there. You have to walk far from your home to reach the bus and even then it takes a while to get where you want to go. If you have a car, it takes about 10-15 minutes to go shopping or spend the night out. This neighborhood is predominantly white, but there have been more people from ethnic backgrounds coming into the community.

I have lived in Salisbury for about 15 years and I have nothing be good things to say about this town. The neighbors are friendly, the area is clean, and is a great town overall to raise kids.
If I could do it all over, I would live in this neighborhood again since its very quiet. One disappointing aspect is that the neighborhood is becoming older and there are fewer kids I see around.
