    I really like living in Andover. The cost of living is higher than other towns around us, but our taxes are higher and we have more privately owned businesses. I would like to see more attractions or activities around for our town. Anything for families or teens to do would require a fifteen minute or longer drive which can be inconvenient. Communities are clean and neighbors are very friendly and nice to be around.

    This neighborhood has a great atmosphere. It is right next to a golf course and contains plenty of space to go jogging or to take the dog for a walk. I have lives in areas all over the country, and this is by far the best. The neighbors are nice, groceries and schools are nearby, and friends always want to crash at my house.

    Growing community with strong public school system. Several major restaurants but not many major retailers. Tend to cater to small local businesses.
