Local Reviews

Honestly the only good thing about where I live is that it is one of the cheaper places to live in town

Neighborhood is mostly quiet compared to others. Dami is really close to us. I enjoy going to the movie theater.

There is one really good pizza restaurant not too far from my home, I love to go to local carnivals when they do happen
