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.

It is relatively safe. There are lots of interesting shops and restaurants. People are generally friendly.

I live alone so I like being in walking distance of marina. I do admit there are a lot of fast food places but they are close by I like the bike trails that are minutes away

We have at least 10 different restaurants within walking distance. There is a sweet little downtown area that has shops and a unique ice cream store. The most unique thing about my neighborhood is the architecture and gardens. People take very good care of their flowers and trees.
