Local Reviews

I have lived here my whole life the neighborhood is pretty. there's a few hangout spots perhaps about 5-10 min away.

Close to shopping areas and restaurants. Straight shot to downtown. Yards are large enough for kids to play.

My community is diverse. There are many ethnic groups. The library has several computers for use by public. We also have a variety of restaurants, Asian, Italian, Mexican, chain restaurants and mom and pop
