Local Reviews

Well we have nice place to eat at ,and ces about history, and a lots of different churches,and always the Casino

All of the houses are cookie cutter. All of the houses have yards. We live close to a DG, a Walmart, and a gas station. There are not many places to take my children. We have parks but they are overcrowded. We have two trampoline parks but they are expensive.

My neighborhood is pretty boring. My favorite is McDonalds. We like going to the park. Its very fun playing outside.

It's a quiet neighborhood. Highway is close by. School and stores are close by as well, all within half a mile of walking distance.

I like going to restaurants. I like going bowling. I like going to the trampoline park. I also like to go roller skating

My neighborhood is quite nice. It's quiet and peaceful. I love that there is parks nearby for my children and its a great place to live since my neighborhood is safe.
