Local Reviews

The small mom and pop stores are great. They really get to know you cause you shop there all of the time . They are what helps living in the area

What's most neat is that the majority of time you'll know the people in the restaurants or grocery stores. The local taco trucks are voted among the best around.

I love how close the schools and parks are walking distance. I also love all the stores and restaurants especially the street sales. With live music and food samples.

It's near a small store so that's convenient. It has good neighbors . My neighborhood does have no potholes .

My neighborhood doesn't have much businesses around but I like the calmness the neighborhood brings.
