I grew up here, so I've had a pretty good experience with it. My grandmother also lives here, which makes it nice to be so near to her. The general atmosphere tends to be friendly and a lot of the people will go out of their way to smile at you or simply say hi. I would definitely move here again.

As far as cities go, its pretty safe, just remember to be cautious and all. It is a city. Its also fairly suburban in most places.
