Local Reviews

The neighborhood is bigger than your usual apartment complexes. I like how there is a shopping center across the apartment complex. There is a walmart 2 minute drive outside the apartment complex. I dont go anywhere much.

It's near a couple restaurants and grocery stores. And the neighbors are quiet (inside their houses).

Right across store, down the road from hospitals, near lots of restaurants. Walking distance for most things

There is a park nearby, which is a good place for the elderly and children to play on weekends. McDonald's is also a must-go place for children

That's people talk to one another. My favorite local business is cosmo is a really good restaurant to the park

I live 200 feet away from one of the parks, so I go there when I want to get out of the house and get some air. You have like 4 grocery stores within 5 miles or less of my neighborhood with a few restaurants nearby as well. Also, plenty of sidewalks to walk around of bike.
