Of all the great things that her neighbors do together, Paige McEachern, 12, says its the together part that matters. In June, 35 families are going to Bermuda. Every July, neighborhood families vacation near one another on the Cape. On any given day, kids can go out and play with other kids. The best thing about living here, says Paige, is so many people coming together and just having fun.
