Crime rate was very, so I felt safe,secure and free to do whatever whether it was day or night

The climate stood out, as well as the beauty. Very nice and relaxing climate

Crime was moderate. Schools were safe. Lived there for 14 years and I have all my family close by and the malls and grocery stores were convenient. Everything was close by.

My favorite place to go was the mall, chuckie cheese's when I was little, the park, library, ice cream shop, friend's houses, school was fun. Bad thing was that hurricanes hit hard there and blackouts happen along with robberies.
