Local Reviews

I like that the crime is quite a bit lower than the other side of town. Several fast food places near by and in walking distance. School Is a 5 minute drive away, so easy to get the kiddos there.

Wonderful parks and major shopping centers close by. Neighbors who talk to each other Great museums and restaurants in our downtown area which is only 15 minutes away!

We know most of our neighbors. We have neighborhood parades and parties. We have local restaurants (Tea Bar and Bites, Team Taco, Otts, Imos Pizza) and a Microbrewery (Tie and Timber) and bar(Cherry Pickers).

I live within walking distance of many restaurants and the primary mall in town. Considering how close we are to many restaurants and shopping our area is uniquely quiet. It is a blessing.

Lots of close areas for things I would need. Not quite walking distance but some wonderful local restaurants within a couple miles. Very pet friendly which is nice, both in my neighborhood and in the surrounding area.

I like that for the most part it's quiet and the neighbors are friendly except one. I like how close it is to the grocery store and other stores.
