Local Reviews

My city is on the ocean, and the landscape is beautiful. I live in a very walkable downtown area with lots of shops and restaurants. The schools are great and there's lots to do.

There is nothing unique about this area. I don't go to a lot of businesses. I prefer to stay home.

it is a small neighborhood so people know each other. there are many gas stations and hotels which is convenient.

The unique thing about the neighborhood is the view. And also that there is a restaurant nearby. And I also like going to my friends house.

I like that people with dogs are willing to stop and let you interact with their dogs. People always seem to have a nice word to say.
