Local Reviews

There are some niche shops here. There's a magic shop. Boutiques. Small locks bars. Big chains. New interesting restaurants and sgops

I like the people, everyone is very friendly. There is easy access to public transportation nearby. Lots of nearby business that are a 5 min drive away and very close to columbia mall.

It is a safe and friendly place with good people. There are lots of things to do and lots of different places to shop.

Neighbors are all wonderful. I like the fact there is no HOA. We are close to everything but you do need a car.
