LOL, I used to say the same thing, especially when I was living in Tallahassee.

Great area.  Clean, safe, tons of activities for families.  Moved out here when my kids were young mainly for the schools.  Never regretted it.  Schools ranking in all the top levels, structured, safe, good curriculums, and tons of parent support.  The parks are full of kids and families during the weekends and evenings during the week.

My oldest friend's family were among the first to buy in the new developments back in the 90's. They first lived in Switzerland while their current house was being built on Julington Creek. This was back when many roads were unpaved, the schools weren't built yet, and the Ghost Light could still be seen on Green Briar Road.

Some pretty houses and natural settings out there, but those arterials quickly and predictably turned hideous and clogged with strip malls and driving traffic. I remember thinking even back then (I was a teenager) that it was all pretty ridiculous. To each his own, I suppose.

We used to joke that you had to love white bread and driving 15 minutes to get it to live there.
Do you believe that when the blue jay or another bird sings and the body is trembling, that is a signal that people are coming or something important is about to happen?

When you say that it is "safe", what dangers do you feel protected from?
