Local Reviews

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.

Everything is unique with a variety of.shopping malls. Everything is different. No place is the same.

I like going to the community park nearby. The uniqueness is cheap comparing to other areas of the neighborhood. Not much favorite restaurants nearby.
