Local Reviews

We can get anywhere and everywhere we need to go quickly. We can walk to a few places to eat, the grocery store, and family and friends.

It's near the lakefront and the uno lakefront arena. The army base is also close . We have a pj coffee smoothie king and it's all in walking distance

I like that the neighborhood is quiet. I like that the neighborhood is close to the interstate and it is easy to get to and convenient/

They have a nice restaurant in neighborhood that my friends and I visit from time to time. There are a few shopping centers nearby.

It's family and kids oriented. It makes you feel safe knowing that your neighbors are always looking out for us. There's a nice church down the street from my house.
