Local Reviews

I like that the neighbors are approachable and friendly. There is also a school pretty close to my house.

my neighborhood have good people looking out for each other, one of my neighbor was very helpful he would warn me some times i would leave my house with garage open, thanks to him

Out of the city I live in . Water sports hiking movie theaters shopping camping occasionally . Sometimes we stay local and go to good family owned restaurants

I like being able to walk my dog over to the park and just let her play for a while. I also enjoy just feeling safe at night from crime.
