Local Reviews

I like the year I live in because it's an over 55 mobile home community and it is cut off from route 20 and all the hustle and bustle of the traffic

I wished it wasn't so expensive to live here. I like going to get coffee with family and friends . Coffee shops are near by and plentiful

Everyone knows everyone. The children rae kind and the parents pride themselves about the neighborhood.

There is a good priced restaurant nearby, where my friends or family often go to get together, it has witnessed a lot of my stories

I like the decoration style of my home very much. It is completely decorated according to my own preferences. We often gather with friends

It is for the most part a quiet neighborhood clean easy to walk to stores there are a lot of places to go to for food i like chinieise
