Local Reviews

There is Nothing unique about my neighborhood. It's just another poor neighborhood. In another crappy city.

My neighborhood is centered to other great neighborhoods which is convenient. although they require a drive, i can get to multiple downtown or old town areas of neighboring cities which is very convenrirnt.

Nothing really I hate it here safe lots of people walking stores close restaurants vacation anywhere

What I like the most about living here is that I am centralized close to everything, 20 minutes from the beach 30 minutes from Disneyland, Knotts, berry, farm, San Diego, Universal Studios, etc.

We can play at eachothers' houses playing osu, genshin impact and fortnite. However, there is no epic games we can go to after we lose our refund limit. I like going to osu utopia

Most of the people in my community are of my same culture so I feel like at home. In addition, my community has a variety of restaurants, grocery stores, and bars.
