Local Reviews

The neighborhood is very quiet. We have some fast food that we can walk to and some fun things to do

It is pet friendly. It is a short walk to the nearest bank and many restaurants and stores. It is close to the freeway. It is easy highway access. It is a diverse community

I have many less concerns and am seen more often. It also always would be pleasant for anyone else to know it along with another.

There are affordable places to eat nearby and it is close to public transportation. The parks are close by and great schools for parents to choose from.

There's restaurants, stores, hospitals, for departments, and highways within working 5-10 miles in every direction

Near lots of shopping and restaurants. More centrally located. Quite. New development going in around me that will be able to walk to. Close to highway for getting around city. Houses being redine
