I love when I live. It's a small neighborhood where everyone knows everyone. Not much goes on in the neighborhood since its small, therefore it's pretty quite. It's somewhat in the middle of nowhere, but it doesn't take long to get to a grocery store or restaurant. Overall, I think this is a great place to live and anyone would love it.

I have never felt unsafe where I live. It's almost impossible to ride down the road and not see a police officer driving down the road. There's not many crimes that happen in the area and if there were, I would feel safe knowing that the police would respond quickly.
I like the town of Smithfield. It is a nice town for most parts. I technically live on the outskirts of Smithfield, but I love both parts. I plan to live here after college. For most parts, Smithfield is simple and traditional.
