Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice
is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one
might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether
shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Canton,
the Route 68 / U.S. Route 11 neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

could be a good choice.
Also, a unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Route 68 / U.S. Route 11

means more time for other things in life.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Some neighborhoods have more internal cohesiveness than others. While other
neighborhoods feel like a collection of strangers who just happen to live
near each other. Sometimes this comes down to not only the personalities
of the people in a place, but how long people have been together in that
neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research has revealed some interesting
things about the rootedness of people in the Route 68 / U.S. Route 11
