Local Reviews

Close to bus stop for public transportation. Close to convince store and some restaurants plus pharmacy near by if I need to get there quickly

Our neighborhood has a pool. Its also really just a fun place. I would like going to the pool with my family and friends

it's a corner with a supermarket and some stores. there are some bike trails which are nice. the public transportation is good.

Nothing unique in particular. Some local cousine is within a few miles. A few local park settings are available

My favorite shopping center is the Fiesta Shopping Center. The Food City is in it. The Goodwill is in it.

Very near to grocery stores and a couple of urgent care facilities. Everything seems convenient. Nice view of the mountains.
