Local Reviews

It's close to a lot of good stores and restaurants. It's safe to walk around during the day. The weather is good.

My neighborhood is safe and I can allow my kids to play outside without constant supervision. I feel safe walking around and the people are friendly and diverse.

I like the quiet in the area. There also is a lot of nature nearby. There are hiking trails an parks not far away.
