Local Reviews

It's quiet! It's beautiful. The views are great. Shopping is close by and there's easy highway access.

Unique pocket of residential. Quick access to all different shops and dining. We like going to all the parks and the library

nothing is trust me when I say this because this place is a dump and I would not live here again if I had the choice

i like living across from a park that is very active with people as well as it being a dog park. there is also a tennis court that is open to the public that is fun to play tennis in.

We are in a great location with shopping, restaurants, and highways nearby and easily accessible. Some of my favorite restaurants are about 5 minutes from here, as well as my job.

There is this amazing coffee shop nearby and with the addition of it the neighborhood is already nicer.
