Local Reviews

I don't particularly like the neighborhood. The only positive thing is that the grocery store is about a block in a half away. I have the local high school across the street which is well maintained.

It's quiet, near activities, good restaurants. Spread out, houses are not smashed together, big yards

The quiet neighborhood, how close it is to a grocery store, how close it is to parks and libraries.
