Local Reviews

The feeling of community, restaurants within walking distance, it is dog friendly, local auto repair shops

What I like most about my neighborhood is how close it is to Downtown. I also enjoy it being walking distance to a music venue for concerts.

It's close to a shopping area that has different stores like grocery stores and food places if you're hungry. This is great for people looking for a bite to eat

The people.easy assese to restaurants.convient transportation.and having more secure places to go to for amusement and enjoyment for the family to go to

Nothing unique there no stores,restaurants around close by.My family and I travel outside of the neighborhood to shop also eat.

It's close to the center of the city. It's very busy and has all the facilities. Restaurants, bars, supermarkets, schools, police stations, and community hospitals are all available. Life is very convenient.
