Local Reviews

I live by my mom. Nice sidewalk for biking. Local trail for bike riding. Dollar general store and gas station within walking range is convenient.

Well I love how quiet my neighborhood is. And the neighbors are extremely polite so that's a plus in my opinion.

It is quite all the time. And there is a state park near by. And the neighbors are friendly. It is good privacy.

I have lived here for over 20 years. I have seen a decline in the type of people who live here. But i won't move in hopes that it will improve. It is close to an area with restaurants and shopping
