Local Reviews

It's an historic neighborhood. Pet friendly business. hi myself I going to the parks well one of the mini parks. There's a lot of gyms and fitness to engage yourself in. There's always a festival or a little market going on freshly produced of course.

Love that close to highway, lots of public transit close with the trains and buses, we have walkable options and lots of things within a close drive as well.

Our neighborhood is role model. Resturant and shops are favorite business in our neighborhood. I like go to walk and camping.

Private parking and nearby grocery stores. Hanging out at restaurants with my friends or at a bar to spend time

In west town, beautiful trees and quiet. A local bar in the neighborhood and it's family oriented. It's also quiet enough since it's just outside the west loop. But it's also walking to the west loop with lots of restaurants

I love just going anywhere because i know the place just very well and i don't think you'll get lost
