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.
The local businesses are family oriented and welcoming. After just a couple times of visiting the stores, the owners know customers names or make an effort to learn them. They try to make friends with each person that walks through their front door.
