    In Beaver, there is very little crime and violence. Living here is also known as living in the "Beaver Bubble" because of how safe and sheltered it is from the outside world. There ate very few instances of crime to speak of, and policing seems thorough regardless of this. There is always an officer present at my high school.

    Beaver PA is a great place to raise children. Downtown Beaver reminds me of "Mayberry" from the Andy Griffith Show. It is about 30 miles from Pittsburgh PA, where you can catch a ball game, visit a science center or enjoy museums.

    The sense of community is great. Living in a very small town, the residents of Beaver are all very close to one another and known many of the other residents on a first name basis. The residents here are also very willing to help each other and do a very good job of keeping this small town clean and beautiful.
