Local Reviews

There are walking and hiking trails nearby and most places near us are dog-friendly, as many people have dogs.

It's San Diego everything is unique. Gotta love the local restaurants. I love the beach or somewhere we can all have fun together

Central to a college campus so our church college friends can visit. Library is nearby as well as some places to have coffee.

big yards, restaurants nearby, shospping center one block away and park is where we go when the weather is nice. and houses are well maintained.

Close stores but I also like about the local businesses that there's a barbershop to play local there's always convenient stores and buses

I am close to everything -- movies, restaurants, stores, freeways and more. I love being able to walk to so many places. We also have mass transit (trolley) just outside of our community, which makes it convenient to get to downtown and other popular areas.
