Quiet with a great natural habitat! Lots of trees, but quick trips on the expressway can get you to larger cities in no time at all.

Lived there for 15 years, it's a nice place to live, but I feel like there was nothing to do. You had to drive fifteen minutes to find anything interesting to do.
Small town so everyone knows everyone. Very safe community. Nice area. Not too small and not too big.
