Local Reviews

I like how everyone knows everyone in my neighborhood. Also, I like how there is a sense of community.

Close to the university, where I work. Pretty easy to access nearby grocery stores. It is also pretty close to the main highway.

Ew model townhouses with good landscaping. I like that my kids are safe to go outside. Plenty of new restaurants in the area

We live around so much great food and great people and great activities and great animals and even greater trees.
