Local Reviews

We have an older neighborhood and the lots are bigger, we are within walking distance to a large park with lots of events.

There are good restaurants nearby. I can't really think of anything else. I am trying to move forward on this survey.

We are close to the foothills in this neighborhood. I also like the proximity to local parks. The neighborhood is also family friendly.

Nothing uniques a standard neighborhood. Mikes Cafe is a favorite place for breakfast. The local park is kept up well and a good place to walk your dog.

Itt is an older established neighboorhood built in the late fifties with nice brick houses and the majority of the families are oloder with grandkids with a few younger families mixed in. It is pretty quiet for the most part.

My neighborhood is very quiet. I love the schools nearby and the grocery stores. I like staying home or going to the mall.
