Local Reviews

We have a huge national park around the corner. There are ongoing activities there and so many local events to attend every week hosted by the city and schools

I have a State Park just down the road from me. I have a strip of places to eat, fast food and restaurants about 2 miles from me. Also, there is a Galleria about 5 miles away from me.

I mean, it's just kind of your average neighborhood. I wish there was something to spice it up, make it more interesting.

What I like most about my neighborhood is that we are all family. The land has been passed down from generation to generation and now my daughter is the 5th generation of my family to live here.

I like that my neighbors are very friendly and dependable. I enjoy the walking along the sidewalks and hiking the hidden trail that leads into to woods.
