It's a good place to raise a family. Lots of children in the area, tree lined streets and great schools in the area. Now that my kids are almost grown and out, I'm not so sure I will remain here. Certainly not much to do especially as a single person.

I live in the country which means that "nightlife" is bonfires in fields and house parties. However, the restaurants around town are amazing. My favorite restaurant is Cessie's which a small family run Italian restaurant. My family has pizza night once a month and we always get pizza from Cessie's. Pizza night allows all of us to sit down at the table and discuss our lives.
Our neighborhood works diligently with the police to try and keep the area safe. We have police officers who patrol the community every couple of hours and watch closely when the children get on and off the bus. They are always around to help. Also, as neighbors, we all look out for each other and help each other out whenever we can.
