My area is very safe. My school district credits are also very high. Elementary School 9 Junior High School 8 High School 7. Many children's facilities. A lot of attached parks. Convenient transportation. Shopping is convenient. There are also outlets.

I like to go shopping at Plaza. There are 10 large American stores. Very convenient. You don't have to run around. I also like shopping. It's less than 5 minutes before the outlet arrives.
