From all the neighbor hoods I've ever lived in, Ive found this one to be the calmest. The neighbors are very friendly and the houses aren't high on prices. Theres a diversity of different races and cultured people and its always great to meet new faces. Due to all the car dealers, fast food places, and stores around, I would say that theres plenty job opportunities around here.

I have lived here for 23 years, I have almost been kidnapped once but otherwise from that every thing has been great. We have had an influx of Hispanic neighbors which adds to our diversity.
Recently moved to the area. It is a quiet town with nice people. There are many schools; mostly public schools. The town has amazing and great restaurants.
