Local Reviews

I eat at restaurant for lunch. Coffee shops during the morning everyday after dropping my son to school. During summer my family and I enjoy walking the beach

Next to the supermarket, the beach is 1 mile away and restaurant all surround my apartment. On the weekend I like to take my family to a all you can eat buffet next to the 405 freeway.

I don't know what makes my neighbor hood unique. My favorite restaurant is this Thai restaurant. I like going to the beach.

There is a school next too homes so kids can walk too. Local businesses to eat at for dinner or lunch.
