Local Reviews

I like that our house is very close to our children's elementary school. It's conveniently located to grocery stores and fast food/take out restaurants. Everything is within a 5 minute drive.

the school is directly behind us. That is good and bad, but it's kind of cool for families that have kids in school. it is a block's walk away. there is a walking path that goes along a creek, just down the road.

what is unique our location / so easy to access key areas of metro area. we have 6 foot wide sidewalks and two great parks within blocks

wooded area behind my home Near restaurants, gas station, near shopping grocery stores near, interstate nearby

I love the trees and outdoor spaces in our neighborhood. The variety of grocery stores are amazing. Everything from economy stores like Aldi and high end stores make it interesting.

I like living here because there is a park you can walk to where everybody is welcome. Also up the street there is a Walgreens you can easily walk to.
