Lots to do and tons of beautiful scenery. The city is generally pretty safe and people are very friendly.

There are lots of good (non chain) restaurants that are fun to go and check out on weekends. Likewise, there are lots of small craft breweries. I don't really have much bad to say other than the fact that downtown all the stoplight are right at the top of the hills for some reason. It makes it very easy to accidentally roll backwards.
