Local Reviews

Its unique in the mix of nationalities. There are plenty of bars and restaurants, some better than others. We usually order in from are favorite Chinese restaurants.

The old man lives a comfortable life, like to go to Wal-Mart, like to climb mountains with his family.

One its quiet here. Two i love all the trees. last all the homes are detached from each other. Resterants are fun to go to.

Nothing that special. The pizza shop is great and then there 8s a.donut spot.There also gas station near by that sale a few goods.

I love that there are different stores to go to. There's 2 different parks to go to. Public transportation is very close.

Everything is very convenient and is at the walking distance like restaurant, grocery stores and busses and trains.
