    Crime & Safety at Lloyd: There's a large wandering homeless population, and when I have to take public transport to and from school, they sometimes make it a safety concern (depending on how aggressive they can be). The neighborhood is perfectly safe during the day, but at night can seem unsavory.

    Community at Lloyd: I really don't know anyone well enough to say. My apartment is very pet friendly.

    Outdoors at Lloyd: It's a city, but it has areas to hike within a short distance. Mount Tabor is less than two miles away and Forest Park is within five miles.
    • 3
    Weather at Lloyd: Summer tends to be very hot, with the occasional rain storm. Once fall hits, the weather starts getting colder and the rains pick up again--come October, it's basically raining until May so you better have your rain coats and umbrellas
    • 2
    Food & Drink at Lloyd: It's mostly just fast food chains or small hole in the wall places that look like you'll get sick if you eat there. There are a few nicer places but they're few and far between
