Local Reviews

I like the school district and their academic program. I like have several restaurants, shopping and groceries stores close.

It's nice. People are friendly, kids play outside and the people are welcoming they all seem to want to get to know who you are and are willing to be helpful

My neighborhood is family friendly with parks, pool, tennis courts. The area is a convenient location

It's close to the river greenway. Not far from Foster Park. New businesses are reclaiming old buildings.

It's quiet and the neighbors are all friendly and work together. I can trust my next door neighbor to make sure my son isn't getting into trouble when I'm not at home

I really like the bistro downtown and the oedq restaurant. Where does my company go for dinner. I really like the bistro downtown and the Oedq restaurant. Where does my company go for dinner
