Local Reviews

Small town feel with friendly neighbors. Plenty of stores and restaurants nearby. And quick to get anywhere you want to be.

Since I am totally blind, my neighborhood is perfect for me because I can easily walk from my home to my local Brookeshire's, Red River bank, or rhino coffee. Neighbors can also meet for a meal and a drink at Daq's Wings and Grill, or simply gather for fun conversations on their porches.

Close to alot of things like my doctors stores mall an alot of eating places we have chilling apple bee

We walk and play there is a huge park nearby, very close to the school my daughter attends. Have crossing gards

I like that the residents in my neighborhood keep their properties up. I also appreciate that my neighbors are fairly quiet and respectful of others.

Good neighbors, great place to raise a family. Close by the shoping centers and centrally located in town
