Local Reviews

Yeah I like my town but at times it's not safe. It's not very big we have a couple parks and a couple grocery stores. But we have couple of good restaurants around the areas. It home for me.

One mile to downtown. Plenty of family run markets nearby. Gas & mini market nearby. All grade level schools within walking distance. Plenty of available fast food and one breakfast and lunch eatery. Even have nearby hair and barber salons.

Close to work, wide streets that are good for kids to play on, and near national parks for weekend trips

Everything is in walking distance. Quiet neighborhood. Would recommend to anyone. Not sure what else to say here.

Closer to multiple transit options. Not far from shopping. Some restaurants and shops nearby. There are food carts nearby that are pretty good.

It's small but has one of the best Mexican restaurants around. Also I like that the stores around my area all know my name and are friendly with me
