Local Reviews

The things I like most about living in my neighborhood are: we are on the bus line. CVS, Walgreens, and Family Dollar are on the corner. I have decent neighbors.

It's very convenient. There is a lot to do in the area. There are local parks and restaurants very close by.

It's not unique. It is on the busline, so we have shopping, restaurants nearby for all. Even a bowling alley.

Friendly neighbors, quiet, near highways, bike trail to stores. Good restaurants, diverse. I don't know what else to write

There's a lot of store you can walk to like cvs and Walgreens and corner stores , etc. There's parks kids can go to and play.

Close with our neighbors, are comfortable with leaving them a key. Are close to coffee, restaurants, ice cream, etc. but are far enough off main roads.
