Local Reviews

It's a very quiet neighborhood. It's unique because it doesn't have a lot of night life or restaurants

Excellent local grocery store in walking distance. Also there are numerous bike trails that connect to other area trails, including access to downtown by bike.

I think that anything that you would like to do here would be acceptable, as long as its ran by everyone in the neighborhood of course if it would cause noise.

Everyone is super friendly and nice helpful and for the most part they like to keep a look out for unwanted visitors. Also they help us with are dog when we are to late or outta town to let the dog out and feed her while we are gone.

My friends and I like to go on walks too one of the parks near by. Another thing that I enjoy about where I live is that there is schools near by within walking distance making the commute to those locations much easier.

I like the people that live in my neighborhood. I like the law enforcement. The local businesses are friendly
