Local Reviews

Oak diner is just down the road is always good. Easy access to drive downtown or to get on The expressway to drive to a big city

There are parks all around my neighborhood and restaurants and stores that are very walkable. We like to go downtown because their are all kinds of shops and stores

Diverse, inclusive, and clean. It has all the necessary businesses within a close proxiimity so one does not have to venture far for basic needs, i.e. dry cleaning, restaurants, etc.

Neighborhood is unique because many families know each other very well and have been around for years. Favorite business is the local ice cream shop. I like going to the nearby downtown with family and friends.

Beautiful homes and friendly neighbors. Lots of big pretty trees. Having neighbors I can trust. I love being close to restaurants and shopping as well.

It is close to downtown and very walkable. There are many parks around. There are always lots of events going on.
