Local Reviews

The best thing of my area is it is in the country side. Some what quiet a slower paced life . Clear skys and air. There are not many entertainment choices though. The best restaurant is aunt Jenny s.

Neighbors help each other and always look out for strange activity. I was recently in the hospital and my neighbors mowed my lawn and brought dinner over

I love the neighborhood I love in. There is a heavy LGBT+ presence, and the area is quite supportive of human rights.

I like that there's a park with a recreation center right by me. I also like that there's a dog park nearby. That there's easy access to stores and restaurants

I like to live in this neighborhood because I can go to some stores by walking, I don't need a car to go to stores.

It is very walkable. It has a unique blend of cultural restaurants and establishments. There are grocery stores nearby.
