Local Reviews

There is nothing really unique about our area. It is a suburb of a major city and fairly quite. There is not anything really local other then chain stores. There are parks and churches nearby.

Great neighbors. Quiet. Convenient to shopping and restaurants. Pet friendly. People care about maintenance of their yards and homes.

It is old school. People live here for years. Most people are respectful. A few renters but no problems. I love local restaurants with Hawaiian Food.

That it is quite and close to restaurants we like going to jacks to eat and our neighborhood is unique each street is named after trees

no graffitti as opposed to my old neighborhood. Police station is just down the street. Neighbors are very friendly.

like everything its safe neighborhood well lit family are safe not much crime safe safe safe i like living there
