Local Reviews

So that's why I eat there I like to eat at a family owned pizza restaurant that's my favorite place to eat

What is the unique about our neighborhood is we're right down the road from the park. Local businesses really were right down the road from just about anything to eat or drink or gas station. I like going to the park with my family and friends.

The homes are from the 60's and all different floor plans. I love how close to downtown we are. I also love how far from down town we are! I love that we would never have to leave our little burb to live a happy life.

My neighborhood is quiet. People are involved on social media and alert people to situations. Police are active in the community.

I have been here almost 30 years so I am unfortunately "use to it" and my immediate surrounding neighbors are my friends.

We have stores across the street. And down the road we have stores and restaurants. We also have more than one gas station on this road and there is also a hospital
