Local Reviews

It's a quiet neighborhood and is in a retirement community. We don't have bars, or many chain restaurants in the community, which I really like. However, we are really close to neighboring towns that have all of that stuff. As far as where I like to do and go with family and friends, it's to one of the eight recreation centers that we have in the community.

Very quiet. Calming. Local businesses cater to the urgent needs of people. I like going to the local restaurants and enjoy the best appetizers for a reasonable price.

Walkable, quiet neighborhood with older residences three restaurants within walking distances. A CVS, Family Dollar, medical offices, Jack-in-the box, Two sit down resturants, bowling alley and One of the recreaction centers with pool, gym, clubs and lots of amenmities with in walking distance.

My neighborhood is a 55+ active senior area. We have local businesses within 3 blocks of our house and a rec center across the street. One of the finest Italian restaurants around is in that shopping area.

My neighborhood is very well maintained. We have a major grocery chain, a restaurant and a strip mall all within walking distance.
