Local Reviews

Convenient shopping, salons, restaurants, Kroger, a convenience store in my apartment building. Shopping Plaza across the street

I love being able to take a walk in the park with my family! I love being able to go to a restaurant that is not to far from the house!

There is a walmart close by and a mall in less than 2 miles from where my block is located at . It's good schools around for the kids.

I like the amount of land, the back yard is not huge, but quite a decent size. I also like that the neighborhood is near city center with a library across the street.
