Setting & Lifestyle
The town is relatively quiet, having a combination of lower population density and few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. For example, Leeds has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Leeds a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
Leeds is a small town, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
