Local Reviews

I like the locked entry way to our apartments. We live close to a lot of different resaurants and stores

I like all the trees and that people can walk their dogs in the street. I like that the neighborhood is well lit and people usually have extra garage lights and yard lights on.

I like that my neigborhood is quiet and well lit at night. I like that my neigbors are friendly and respectful of eachother. O like that my neighborhood is well naintained.

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.

Favorite resaurant is a Greek Pizzaria that has fabulous pizza. Right around the corner is a very convenient group of stores including Kroger, gas stations and places to eat. We like going for pizza.

That there are many different neighborhoods. It's near grocery stores and some restaurants. I like going to the bars nearby.
