I love going for walks with my friend.love to go out to eat with my friend.stores are close enough to Walk to

What's unique will be 5 restaurants on one block a park right up the street from a grocery store in also I like going to the parks cause they renewed them which was nice

It's a condo community. There are two big grocery stores nearby. Restaurants are a short drive away. It is close to a major hospital and close to a major interstate.

Well there's nothing unique about this neighborhood here and answer you know it's all the same thing as I said you running from coyotes that come at night you might see him it might be foxing along with him you know and kill a skunks

It is usually quiet. Very little traffic. It is a mobile home community. You can take a walk at night.

I have lived in it for years and its comfort. Local restaruants are Lino's. Its close to main stores
