Local Reviews

Nothing unique. But the neighborhood does have a great coffeeshop, a Panera, a movie theater, a branch of a community college (for now--it's moving). Re family and friends, there's a pub in a strip mall, a coffeehouse, and a movie theater.

Has a nice park for young children and is where community events happen. It is located within blocks of restaurants and grocery store and more.

I like going to the movies, out to eat, hanging at the park and driving around the area and shopping

There are nice people and tons of little free libraries. and only a 3 mile bike ride to downtown. Close to schools

Sometimes I see the deer in the woods. It is very close to the lake where we walk daily. I really don't see any progress ere to brag about.
