Local Reviews

We live right next to the Columbia River so we have a very nice view. I live amongst mostly retred couples who have a very good income, makes for a more pleasant living experience.

It's close to the subway and I have everthing around me. There's a lot of good restaurants and malls so it's nice to walk around and browse the stores

I like being able to walk to the park and the public library is near also the community center where I can swim or lift weights for exercise.

i like being so close to the restaurants i like. too bad im not allowed outside, but yeah the walkability is pretty top tier here. i could walk to subway from here

In our neighborhood I like how we are very close to the stores and police department. Our streets our also filled with lights so we can see where we are going.

There is a park nearby. I also enjoy the local neighborhood strip of businesses. Most neighbors are nice.
