Quite and pleasant . The favorite is pizza shop, ice cream shop. We go to ice cream shop with our friends. We go to play area nearby. We often visit friends place nearby.

We have a great walking trail and green belt area. We have a community pool. We can walk to stores and even Stanford hospital.

folks are all upper middle class, close to all services, houses are all well kept without any weird colors, the power stays on most of the time

Near the school rated above score of 8. Also have coffee shops and shopping centers near the community, with nice restaurant and SPA business available

It is super nice Town and there are tons of local restaurants. I like to go to the all house is my favorite to go to.

I like how everything is close by. There's a starbucks right across the street. There is a really good pizza place 2 blocks away.
