It was mainly suburban areas there so not much as far as crime, but being in the big city you always have the chance of something happening.

I really liked going to the outdoor malls and all the wonderful mexican food restaraunts. One restaraunt to look out for is Filibertos mexican food. The bad thing is that it is the suburbs so there isn't much to do as in activities.
