Local Reviews

Its close to resturants close to motels and gas stationsits goog goog googits close waling distance to stuff

It's walking distance to a few stores, close to a school, and friendly neighbors. We all know each other, and look out for one another.

There's a lot of cool restaurants and bakeries that are walkable. There is a strange but cool graveyard/walk path/ park two blocks away.

There is a bike path near. The elementary school is within walking fdistance and it is safe to walk. The neighbors watch out for the kids each morning and night. There is a small park within walking distance.

It's a street without much traffic. Most yards are well maintained. There are more good neighbors than bad.
