Local Reviews

That all the neighbors work together. They watch out for each other. If there's a car that you don't know, they will put it in the group chat.

Rural country quite people mind their own business and u can hunt in the back and fish in the front. Plus I grew up there

I love how friendly everyone is. it is quiet and the people are kind. I love the houses and country atmosphere

Our neighbors are so sweet and caring. We are 5 minutes from stores and restaurants. Our family and friends love to play and walk our subdivision.

When I do need to go to a gas station I don't go far. There is one on each end of the main road. I'm close enough to everything that I only have to go maybe 3 miles tops. Only thing unique about my neighborhood is that they make their own boudin and cracklings so I can get them whenever I want

The thing I like most about my neighborhood is that me and all my friends live right down the street from other.
