    I choose that my overall experience of this area has been great. I haven't put any thought as to whether or not I would want to live anywhere else. I live right on the outside of Springfield (technically in Battlefield), which gives me the privacy that I greatly appreciate, but it also gives me the ability to drive into town quickly and not be in the car for thirty minutes there and back.

    I put that the crime and safety in this area is great. I put this because from what I have seen, the crime is very low overall here where I live, and I normally always feel safe. The police are quick to respond if necessary.

    Nice, quiet suburban area. A few restaurants and gas stations, but otherwise not much to do in the general area. For shopping, a drive into Springfield or other nearby city is required.
