Local Reviews

I like that it is close to a lot of restaurants like Chili's and Olive Garden. I like that the neighborhood is quite and I have not noticed any crime activity. I feel safe in the neighborhood.

There are stores nearby. The local gyms are really friendly. I like to buy flowers at the florist on my daily walk.
