Local Reviews

nothing much, typical Bixby Knolls. Lola's Mexican food. Going to the bluffs, near the beach, for a picnic or just watching the sun go down.

The neighborhood is designated a historical landmark with lots of restaurants and themed businesses. It has First Friday's each weekend and the families come to the downtown area to walk, window shop, listen to music and eat.

the neighborhood is gated. There is a nice park within walking distance. A lot of good restaurant in a close proximity to choose from. A lot of community events.

Many small business and local restaurants to eat at. Breweries, pubs, dine in and take out places are a plenty

The thing that I like most about the neighborhood I live in is the location.

There is lots of diversity in the city. Lots of restaurants and bars. Nice for walking around. Love local small businesses
