Local Reviews

I like that we have a pond in our backyard shared throughout the neighborhood and I like that there is no one behind us.

There are quite a few restaurants in walking distance. Grocery's are close. You can go to set down restaurant in a few blocks plus a lot of fast foods

My neighborhood includes several restaurants and grocery stores. It is close to Lazlo's, Fireworks, and Runza.

There are lots of trees, great walking/bike paths, and a great park. Also, the mall is close as well as bard and restaurants withing walkable distances.

I enjoy being so close to mid-town. I am only 2 blocks from the main road here in our town. We live near a grocery store, we have a Starbucks at the end of the block and a Godfathers pizza nearby.

I love the our neighborhood is close to the interstate on ramp, since I work in a different town. There are restaurants and grocery stores within five minutes.
