Crime & Safety
I have lived in Tea since I was 3 years old. I actually live a mile and a half outside of Tea in a huge development. It seems to me that all the residents in Tea are so friendly, based on the amount of time we spend together. A disadvantage of living in Tea is that there is not a lot of places to eat. Most people travel into Sioux Falls to eat. Even though Sioux Falls is less than 5 minutes away, it still inconvenient. As for the restaurants we have in Tea, great service and excellent environment.
I liked the small town and the safety in the community. The school system needs to be improved and they need to care for their students more. The classes are alright, however. Tea is also very close to Sioux Falls, so more people can get more jobs there with a small commute time due to smaller amounts of traffic.
It is a great place to raise a family and to grow up as a child. Great values, incomparable safety, and many fun safe things to do. I am ready to move to a different place but I am so thankful to have grown up in this area.
