Local Reviews

For the most part it is safe and everyone is friendly since I've grown up there s kid me and my sister.

There is nothing unique about my neighborhood. It is just what you think of a family neighborhood. Close enough to public transportation but bar enough away.

my favorite thing about living in this neighborhood is i can just about walk to any place needed. restaraunts, parks, schools, gas station, bike trail, church, pharmacy, and grocery stores

i like my neighbors the surrounding areas The view and on weekends we have community cook out so it's always nice

My neighborhood is very family and pet friendly. It is close to the river and local Dairy Queen and pool.
