Local Reviews

Neighborhood is located on the bay and ocean. Liberty Station. It is historic naval base that has been remodeled with restaurants, shopping, exercise and recreation. We mostly spend time with family and friends in our neighborhood in several different ways. Restaurants, boating, exercise, home entertainment.

The nearby supermarket is one of my favorite places to go, and there are lots of great restaurants. I often eat out with my family. It's so convenient.

It is very close to so many different restaurant. Lots of things are walking distance. You are very close to downtown
