Local Reviews

I live where I work, so commuting is really easy, I walk. There are useful businesses nearby, a Wlgreen's, a gas station, a 7-11, and a bunch of dining options nearby.

We are close to schools and to shopping . We are a friendly neighborhood. I can trust our neighbors. We watch out for each other. Safeway is close for grocery shopping. We are within 5 miles of good restaurants and various types of retail stores

that its close to public transportation and there are grocery stores nearby within bus distance or walking

I like the red wood trees and covenant store is close by. Grocery store are not to far. Dog park within 2 miles

It's on a mountain for great views, residences only, no commercial for low traffic. It's an easy drive to local business, but does not attract people to the neighborhood.

I like how neighbors tend to look out for each other. I like how you are able to talk walks to downtown to meet up with friends. You can get to school in about a 5-15 minute walk.
