Local Reviews

I like that my neighborhood is near schools, grocery stores and some restaurants. I like shopping at some of the nearby stores.

Neighbors hood and I are in a house right next door and they have the door locked so they don't know if they're coming

The nearby bar is one of my favorite places to go, and the nearby restaurants are also very close for me to eat

I like to live in a clean and tidy place. I also like to live in a quiet place. I like to be close to nature

i love the older houses and the way that our neighbors keep their lawns, We seem to know everyone but some working so away during the day

I like the friendliness of those people near my home.. We have a small shopping center in walking distance. It offers grocery shopping, restaurants and other businesses.
