Cost of rent for the size of home we have. Having a home the size we have allows us to have our friends and family gather for holidays. Access to the interstate is fairly easy and traffic is never a problem here.

There are Plenty of good restaurants nearby. We have options for Good selection of stores nearby. We live in an area that is Convenient to highway.

It's very quiet. It's settled into its own area off the highway, so it feels secluded while still having quick access to everything. The rent is a decent amount and I haven't run into any serious issues while living here.

Houses are packed in tight with one another, kids for my kids to play with, quiet friendly neighborhood.
