Local Reviews

My neighbor is quiet and secluded. It is also close to shops, a hospital,and downtown. It feels safe.

You can walk to the grocery store and some restaurants. You do need a car to get to the park. But everything you need is just a few minutes away.

You can be outside any time of day or night without being afraid. It is located a few minutes outside of the city limits, so it is quiet.

Neighborhood's nice low income homes; a few apts. Overall affordable/somewhat friendly but cautious. Most yards nice, but some litter on vacant lots. Near CVS pharmacy, Family Dollar, Chinese, Italian, McDonald's & Subway. Speedway gas station, Food Lion , Wake Forest U., Churches, parks, downtown. Public transportation. Go to parks and restaurants, shops. Museum nearby. Fairgrounds and Coliseum in area.

We chose this house to convince.close to highways,,stores close by. Just an okay neighborhood outside of house is outdated so our others in area.

I would like to have. Ore fastfood restaurant's. I would like to have a grocery store closer I like to have a upscale restaurant. I would like to have a clean park
