Local Reviews

Many bars and restaurants to choose from. Nice that many have outdoor seating. Lots of local stores on Main Street. Live music and local events happen all year long.

Our neighborhood is well lighted at night. Schools are within blocks so many kids can walk. Very few apartment houses mostly family homes

It's close to our works. It's close to our schools. It's close to downtown where we like to support local restaurants.

Park and golf course near by. There are bile path easily accessible to riders.The Main Street is near that has many shops and restaurants with indoor and outdoor seating.

I like the convenience. There are a lot of sidewalks, along with walking underpasses and a walking bridge over a busy road. There are lots of businesses nearby and I anyplace I ever need to go is within 2 miles.

Friendly neighbors for the most part. Close to downtown, minutes from the bars/restaurants in town. Close to University
