Local Reviews

I work at a school which is within walking distance from my home. The children at the school are very nice and polite.

The only things I like are that it is quiet and clean, with very little crime. The weather is good year round. Otherwise I would not live here. I have no friends in the area and do not go out socially.

Great people live here. All shopping is within 1-3 miles. Great weather. Love going to local restaurants with friends,

Safe and stores nearby. Schools in walking distance. Neighbors are amazing and friendly. They are like family. Always looking out for one another .

Close to lots of grocery stores, shopping and restaurants. We have parks nearby and a school two blocks away. A major great freeway is a quarter of a mile away yet you can't hear the traffic.

I like that the neighborhood is in sc close to beaches and businesses nice weather people are friendly
