Local Reviews

Fast food restaurants are easily accessible. Lots of kids play in the parks. It's a pet friendly area. Even if someone has no car they can walk up to schools, grocery stores, fast food chains, and pharmacy.

old brick homes and close to library and a couple mexican restaurants. able to walk to 2 different churches and close to my grandkids. driving distance to grocery store and gas stations

Families have lived here for years, I live 2 streets away from where I grew up. Houses usually sell to kids that grew up in the neighborhood. Don't see many houses for sale.

The park I'd say it's ten or fifteen minute walk had to go home to get the .D by your day to start your day with a little more fun to work out with your own life to.

we go out to places all the time tbh sometimes very far sometimes very close idk tbh where else to go
