No, I live about 30 minutes outside where I grew up. The area isn't bad but it is going downhill. Almost everyone I know moved across the river like I did. Some moved farther out. Most of us moved for the great school districts out here. My parents and sister still live where I grew up though.
Yes, just moved back 2 years ago. In fact we live in my families business even! My parents had a furniture/appliance store, when they began to phase out of the business they started to build apartments (college town) in the warehouse then they began doing it in parts of the store until the entire place is now an apartment complex. My parents sold their house & moved in to the apartment next to me, we share a porch LOL my sister lives on the other side of them, my other sister bought a piece of the land like 12 years ago & build a house next to this building so we share a yard then my brother lives in our grandfather's house, he moved in when grandfather passed that is 1/2 mile up the road LOL None of us left it's fun but maybe a bit pathedic too hehe
