Local Reviews

I love that we have sidewalks in and around my neighborhood. We have a gas station, pizza place, and a Dollar General right across the street so we can walk if needed.

In my neighborhood we look out for each other. If someone is away for a period of time we watch over their house for them.

There is a lot that is a short drive away. 30-60 minutes drive away from major sites of entertainment, arts, etc.

Stores near by, park near by walk. Neighborhood is quiet at nights, there's a lot of dogs neighbors own.

Things I like about my neighborhood is there are stores near by like Chipotle, Wing stop and a supermarket. I also like my neighborhood because it's always quiet.

I love that our homes are spread out. There's land between each home. I don't look put my window to peer inside my neighbor's home.
