It is very quiet here, but it kinda far away from the town center. The rent is cheaper out here, but you have to drive a longer distance to go to campus.

The variety and selection of restaurants in the town abound, and the food is amazing!
The crime out here is almost non-existent. Only one incidence happened in my area. Some property of mine was stolen from my patio. We called the police and it took them a while to get to us.
