Local Reviews

The people are nice and its pretty close to some main stores. It could definitely do with a few more restaurants and convenience stores. It's a low income neighbor hood so there is a certain amount of crime here.

My neighborhood is pretty clean and quiet. We have no troublesome neighbors. Grocery stores and supplies are close by.

Amazing taco trucks, incredible views of the mountain. Quick access to great hiking trails and horseback riding.

I grew up here there's lots of fast food restaurants a college near buy 2 city parks nice view of the mountains near buy

My neighborhood is next to a park and there are stores and restaurants within walking distance. Also there is more ch to see just by walking around the neighborhood. South Mountain is behind the common lex and you can just walk.

I like the coffee shop next to my community best. When I have nothing to do, I will go there to have coffee with my family
