Alden is a wonderful community, it is very quiet and family friendly. They often have family activities within the village as well as school activities open to the public. There are many stores and restaurants within the area, so driving for groceries or to go out to eat is only a short commute.

People in my community usually stay in the community. The community area is pretty well kept. The crime rate is not high, and the majority of the community is involved with supporting the local school system. Many small business have failed recently in the community. The majority of the population in the community are either middle age or seniors.

To be honest this could be way better. We don't have any big chain retail store like Target or Walmart. Mostly we have restaurants. So like if last minute you need something like clothing, you aren't going to find it in Alden.
