Local Reviews

Its nice and quiet, there is not alot of traffic or car activity. I see lots of deer by the side of the road because of the near by forests. I also like that my job is down the street so i dont have to commute far

It is try rural and agricultural so I have animals roaming freely. It is a friendly community with environmentally concerned citizens. Neighbors watch your house for unusual activity. Love the scenery.

I like that it is quiet. There are a lot of children but you would never know coining into my neighborhood.

I like that it has a grocery store very close. It has a park where I can take my kids. I can walk around the neighborhood on sidewalks.

I like how close where I live is to both a downtown area and to a college. You can walk anywhere in the area
