Local Reviews

It's affordable, going to the parks and most of my favorite store chains are close by also I also get to meet peoples

It's extremely quiet at night, that it's located next to grocery stores and or restaurants and it's very close to a bus line

I love our favorite local restaurants and bakery as they are in walking distance. I love that the park is at the end of the street and the zoo has a free day where you can go with your kids. I love that people are helpful

I love the fact that we can walk to the beach. I love the old historic houses. We can walk to great restaurants.

I'm self employed. My work is generally within 10-15 miles away. Grocery stores and shopping did are within minutes. Restaurants are within minutes.

How friendly and supportive most my neighbors are. I also love the local businesses and cute areas I have found through the years.
