Setting & Lifestyle

Canterbury is a good choice for families with children because of several factors. Many other families with children live here, making it a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families. The town’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic success. Many people own their own single-family homes, providing areas for children to play and stability in the community. Finally, Canterbury’s overall crime rate is lower than average for the country.

It is a fairly quiet town because there are relatively few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. (Children, for example, often can't help themselves from being noisy, and being parents ourselves, we know!) Canterbury has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy. Canterbury has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Canterbury than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Canterbury may be for you.

In Canterbury, however, the average commute to work is quite long. On average, people spend 31.65 minutes each day getting to work, which is significantly higher than the national average.
