The general atmosphere here is alright. Personally, I think it is very quiet. I'm a person who likes to walk to places and be very busy, so living here is a little hard for me. I cannot drive everywhere, so the places that I can go are limited. The suburbs are nice if someone likes a quiet enviornment, however if an individual is a person who likes to keep busy, this place isn't a good fit. Personally, if I could do this all over again, I would most definitely enjoy living in a small city, or a community that has a busy air. While the area that I live in is ideal for families and those who want a strong high school education, this area is not, in my opinion, suitible for a college student or a young adult. However, I live in a very safe area, and the level of crime is very low. This is one of the perks of living where I do, because I am never scared. Overall, I'm grateful to have grown up here, as my education was high quality, and I had a quiet sheltered childhood. However, I'm excited to persue an enviornment that is catered more towards my interests.
The crime in this area is very low. I have never encountered nor seen a major crime happen. Growing up, I heard about several houses that were robbed, but they were never in my area. Since my community is composed of many families and young children, the number of young criminals is very low. Police are always close. Although they take some time to arrive at a scene of a crime, they are always around and are helpful. The worst crime I've truly come across is people speeding on the road, of which most are caught by a police officer. Overall, I feel safe in my community.
