Near hospitals and schools and stores everything is close it's quiet mainly older people not that many kids

The area I live in is, for the most part, is pretty nice. It is close to a river and a Riverwalk. Also, it is close to parks and nature. Another plus, it is biker friendly.

What I love about this neighborhood is that we live near the river and have many bike trails. We have availability to rent bikes down here if you don't have your own personal bike and you and your family can ride together. I would love the restaurants down here I love the fact they have an ice cream shop called Cold Stone that I love so much. I love the fact that there are historical landmarks down here that people can visit and we also given to you Canada we have a Riverwalk where we can just walk down with family or ride your bike. I love the fact that you rarely ever hear about crime in the area where I live and it's family-friendly.
