Local Reviews

i love how serene the place is and how friendly the people are. The environment is great and relaxing for me. The place is quiet and peaceful all the time.

I like how there's three playgrounds walking distance. I also like how the grocery store or how other stores are walking distance too. I'd have to say that my favorite place out here would be the movie theater.
