Close to friends and family and stores for foods and Walmart.close to a tire place and garage for break do

Nothing to do around here in prichard, no places to go to have fun, no places to go for the kids to have fun, no play grounds or parks or skating rinks or nothing here for the kids or adults. Only food place store here is greens. No fast food places near by to go and eat at
