      Close to everything, great for families
      I have really enjoyed living here. I think the cost of living is kind of high, but you definitely get what you pay for here and it is worth the money. There are so many things to do and everything is really close by. We have grocery stores scattered around, nice restaurants, shopping, coffee shops, parks, and libraries. Everything is pretty close by, but if you don't have a car there are a ton of bus stops all over the city and lots of people use them. There are a lot of public school options for families and they are all really good quality. We have fitness centers as well. The city is really well rounded and diverse and there's a lot to do. As I said earlier, the cost of living is kind of high, but like I said everything is so close and there's so much to do. The crime rates are low, I have kids and I know they are safe when I leave them alone. The weather is pretty good most of the time.
