Local Reviews

Lots of families. Neighborhood is near shopping areas and interstate/highways. I enjoy eating at restaurants nearby.

I have good neighbors on each side of my home. My favorite shop is Starbucks, Talbots Clothing and Bath & Beyond. I enjoy going to a favorite seafood restaurant, New Orleans Seafood.

We all treat each other like one big happy family and we look out for each other's families to make sure we are all safe

We have public concerts every year. Also we have our if town visitors who come and life in the land and bring added culture to the area.

My neighborhood is very friendly. The people in my neighborhood look out for each other. I am close to grocery stores, and restaurants.
