I enjoy living where I live, particularly for the people around me and their friendliness and good work ethic.

In my area most people live comfortably and have the option to see outside of their environment if they would like to do something. There is considerable amount of opportunity in my area.

I don't like how crowded it is. You can never get out of town and into the country. But the people and the atmosphere is fairly friendly, at least for the east coast.
