My house os great and I love my fenced in backyard. And my neighbors are cool too. And it's close to the bus stop too to walk to to get around

There is a store nearby, it's nice and quiet. We have good neighbors on our street and others. La la la la la, and the cat scratched the sofa.

The best things about our neighborhood are proximity to the lake. Also, easy and quick access to the interstates.

That it is close nit and we can depend on one another for basic and urgent needs that plague our community

I like the feeling of "community". I wish we had some more variety in dining options. The friendliness makes it seem like home!

The golf corse is across the street literature across the street my brotherand I when we were young would shoot a few holes on Christmasdays when course way close. 18 holes Bunn golf course
