Local Reviews

It's close to the highway and center of town but quiet and has a fair amount of trees. Lot size is also nice, everyone has a good sized yard.

It's close to grocery stores and restaurants. We like going to the mall and out to eat. It's near a school. My favorite places are chipotle and mccallisters.

I think our neighborhood is unique because we do still care about each other and watch out for each other. And within a two mile radius we have many local businesses I love. Restaurants, coffee shops and local, not chain, grocery stores.

White neighborhood. dollar General store. Walmart supercenter lowes's and tractor Supply. Nice weather

Safe for my kids, which is VERY important. Friendly neighbors that look out for each other. Close to the grocery store.

It is large and great to walk around in and there's easy access to trails and natural areas. There's lots of wildlife and friendly people
