Working in Waverly
The town is well cleaned and I feel very safe walking around. Though there is some crime, the town is much like any other small, college town. But, I do not fear walking around without someone with me or being alone or lost; there is always someone watching, whether it is someone from around town or police (in a non-creepy way).
It's a very cute small town that has everything you need but isn't too far from larger areas. Family-friendly and has great schools - definitely a great place for raising children!
