The crime is low because a lot of people openly carry. The schools in a majority of the area are very well-kept and clean. The housing market is also phenomenal compared to places on the Eastern shore.

The Space Center had multiple things for parents, children, and the curious to explore regarding Space Exploration. The Huntsville Space station makes a lot of the rocket boosters and things like that. Redstone Arsenal is mostly army, so it gives a safer feeling.
